Report: Israel provided intel on imminent threat to Iranian journalists in London

Israel was behind the warnings of an imminent threat that were sent to two Britain-based Iranian journalists earlier this month, the Kan broadcaster reports.

On November 7, the opposition outlet Iran International said in a statement that two of its reporters had been notified of an “imminent, credible and significant risk to their lives and those of their families. Other members of our staff have also been informed directly by the [London] Metropolitan Police of separate threats.”

According to Kan’s unsourced story, those warnings were the result of intelligence that Israeli security services provided to their British counterparts.
