Israel has told embassies and missions worldwide to up their vigilance over fears over an Iranian terror attack following an alleged plot in Cyprus and other recent events, Channel 12 news reports.

The network also says three other members of an Iranian terror cell have fled the island. Cypriot authorities have arrested an Azeri national in connection to the plot, which Israel has alleged was an Iran-backed effort to target one or more Israeli businesspeople in Cyprus.
