Ambassador Oren: Iran Planned to Attack Israeli Embassy in US
Israel's ambassador to the United States, Michael Oren, said that Iran was planning to attack the Israeli embassy in the U.S.
Last year, Manssor Arbabsiar, a 56-year-old naturalized U.S. citizen holding both Iranian and U.S. passports, was arrested at New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport and charged with plotting to assassinate the Saudi ambassador to the U.S. in Washington.
However, there was another high-profile component to the plot, which escaped public attention.
According to an FBI special agent, Arbabsiar also "discussed the possibility of attacks on a number of targets. These targets included government facilities associated with Saudi Arabia and with 'another' country and these targets were located within the United States."
The “other” country, Oren said, was Israel.
