Israel has stepped up its protection of current and former senior security personnel, particularly when they are overseas, the Kan public broadcaster reports.

The move comes amid increased tensions with Iran, which has been unable to respond to a series of actions reportedly carried out by the Mossad in recent years.

The report says that a focus of the security is also on former senior Mossad people currently in other countries.

The Prime Minister’s Office declines to comment on the report.
