The director-general of the Foreign Ministry has sent a letter to all Israeli missions urging them to up their security protocols and remain alert following the assassination of top Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, Hebrew media reports say.

Citing the “events over the weekend,” Alon Ushpiz calls on missions to maintain “the highest possible level of preparedness and vigilance for any unusual activity in the area of the mission, at the homes of families and at Jewish and Israeli community centers,” according to the Kan public broadcaster.
