    Syrians linked to ISIS in Thailand planned to attack Russian interests

    from: Syrians linked to ISIS in Thailand planned to attack Russian interests - Breaking News - Jerusalem Post

    BANGKOK - Ten Syrians "related to" Islamic State entered Thailand in October to attack Russian interests, Thai police said in a leaked document citing information from the Russian Federal Security Service.

    In the document, Special Branch police urged an intensification of security around "target areas that Russian authorities are concerned about" including venues associated with allies that have taken part in attacks on Islamic State in Syria.

    Russia began air strikes in Syria on Sept. 30 and has stepped up attacks in recent weeks. An Islamic State affiliate claimed responsibility for downing a Russian airliner over Egypt in October, killing all 224 people on board.

    Thailand's Special Branch, which deals with national security issues, circulated the document to other police units, two senior police officers told Reuters.

    Marked "Urgent" and dated Nov. 27, the Special Branch police said intelligence from Russia warned that the 10 Syrians entered Thailand between Oct. 15 and Oct. 31. The document was circulating on social media on Thursday.

    "The document is real. We received it from Special Branch," said one of the police officers, who handles international crime matters. He declined to be identified because of the sensitivity of the matter.

    "I have to deal with this issue now," he said. "The original communication was by word of mouth between Russian and Thai police. I don't know how the document leaked."

    The Special Branch, which sent the document to investigative divisions within the national police, said four of the suspects traveled to the seaside city of Pattaya, two to the tourist island of Phuket, two to Bangkok and two to an unknown destination.

    They know all this stuff, the fact that they are terrorists, who they are, where they went, and all we get is a memo.......?

    "I have to deal with this issue now," Says it all really.

    In my mind I have a picture of Chief Wiggum typing on his invisible typewriter...

    Makes you wonder... just in time for X-mas and New Year's.... makes you wonder if anything big will go down.
    Remember that not getting what you want is sometimes a wonderful stroke of luck.

    I read this article a few days ago on several news outlets. I have recently tried to see any additional updates regarding this and I find very little. I guess it is just not much of an interest as there are only a few posts on this thread as well.

    Good point. Met a few Israelis... one told me off for taking a bar girl home saying they are "dirty". He was there at the same bar every night for two weeks... I never saw him take a woman though... but he flirted a lot... probably went home and ordered room service to include a massage and a bacon baguette.....

    You should have told him that the reason you took her 'home' was to convince her about the evil of her ways... That's all Honest 5555

    I have a nasty trick I play on Israeli tourists, if I hear them speaking in Hebrew while I have a massage (which is often where I go), I will start talking to them in their native tongue, when they ask me where I'm from, I saw "Libnan / Lebano n", "Ana ma Hezbollah/I'm with Hezbollah" 555 It's just a joke, but it's no secret Israelis have been seen as targets in Thailand, it's my service announcement to keep them on their toes! 555

    I'd be worried they might see prevention as the better part of valour... 55
