Prime Minister Naftali Bennett’s office blames Iranian terrorism for last week’s reported assassination attempt against Israeli billionaire Teddy Sagi in Cyprus, saying that Sagi wasn’t specifically the intended target.

“Regarding some of the reports last night about the incident in Cyprus, I would like to clarify, in the name of security officials, that it is a terrorism event that was directed by Iran against Israeli businessmen who live in Cyprus,” says Bennett’s spokesman Matan Sidi in a statement.

“This wasn’t a criminal incident, and businessman Teddy Sagi wasn’t the [specific] target of the attack,” he adds.
