Mossad thwarts Iranian attacks on Israelis in Africa – report


The Mossad has foiled multiple attacks by Iran on Israeli tourists and business people in at least three African countries, Channel 12 reported on Sunday evening.

According to the report, the destinations were Israelis visiting Tanzania, Senegal and Ghana.

Five suspects, all with African passports, were reportedly arrested.

Iran has tried to harm Israel or the Israelis – at sea, with cyberattacks and by attacking Israelis abroad.

There is an ongoing shadow war between countries going back decades, but Iranian efforts have increased since November 2020 after the Islamic Republic’s leading nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was allegedly assassinated by the Mossad.

In addition, Iran has accused the Mossad of having sabotaged its nuclear facilities in July 2020 and in April and June of this year.

The Jerusalem Post and foreign media have also reported on Israel’s support for the assassination of Quds Force head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, Qasem Soleimani, in January 2020.

Around the same period in 2012 there were also Iranian plans to attack Israelis in Thailand, India, Georgia, Azerbaijan and Kenya.

In January, Iranian officials attempted an attack on Israeli diplomats in India.

Israeli intelligence officials have estimated that the Islamic Republic will continue to attack Israelis and Jews in places they believe security is weaker, at least until they feel they have achieved some level of revenge and deterrence against Israeli attacks on Iran to have.
