Mossad says it helped foil planned Iranian attack on Jewish targets in Greece
Emanuel (Mannie) Fabian is The Times of Israel's military correspondent.
The Mossad spy agency says it aided Greek authorities in foiling an attempt by two Pakistanis to carry out an attack against Israeli and Jewish targets in Greece.
In a statement carried by the Prime Minister’s Office, the Mossad says details of the “serious affair” that were released earlier today are part of Iran’s constant attempts to target Israelis and Jews abroad.
“After the investigation of the suspects began in Greece, the Mossad assisted in unraveling intelligence of the infrastructure, the methods of operation, and the connection to Iran,” the spy agency says.
The Mossad says the investigation revealed that the two Pakistanis were part of a “wide Iranian network that operates from Iran and out of many countries.”
The spy agency vows that together with its partners in the intelligence community, it “works by virtue of its role continuously to thwart terror attacks by Iran all over the globe.”
