Mossad said to foil Iranian attacks on Israeli embassies

Israel’s Channel 12 news reports that the Mossad spy agency recently managed to foil planned or attempted Iranian attacks on Israeli diplomatic missions in Europe and elsewhere.

It says the names of the other countries remain under censorship, but cooperation with them helped to thwart the attacks.

No other details are available, and no sources are named.

In 2012, Iran and its Hezbollah proxy seemingly attempted to carry out a number of attacks against Israeli diplomatic missions in India, Georgia, Thailand, and elsewhere.

The channel also estimates that an attack on the Natanz nuclear facility in Iran credited to Israel managed to set back Tehran’s enrichment program two years, citing intelligence estimates.

A report by Israel’s Channel 13 on Sunday claimed the attack only set back the work by a single year.
