The Consulate General of Israel in Miami received the all clear on Thursday from police after a bomb threat forced a temporary evacuation of the building، as Arutz Sheva said.
Miami Police said the threat came into the consulate as a phone call at 11:32 a.m. (local time).
After searching the building and premises، police said no credible threat was found.
"We take these matters extremely seriously،" Miami Police officer Christopher Bess told 7 News Miami. "Our units arrived، bomb squad was deployed and they searched the building. We took every safety precaution available."
Jewish community centers in the United States and Canada have been victims of similar false alarms in recent weeks.
A statement on the Anti-Defamation League's website said the organization was "organizing local security trainings in partnership with the FBI in the wake of a series of bomb threats against Jewish Community Centers."
