JERUSALEM (AFP) — Israeli intelligence chiefs told the cabinet on Sunday that Iran and its Lebanese ally Hezbollah had plotted attacks in more than 20 countries over the past two years, the prime minister's office said.
Mossad spy chief Tamir Pardo and Shin Bet internal security chief Yoram Cohen had been called to brief ministers on "counter-terrorism activity by the intelligence services" following Wednesday's bombing in Bulgaria that killed five Israeli tourists and their driver, and which Israel blamed on Iran and Hezbollah.
"Iran and Hezbollah made preparations to carry out attacks in more than 20 countries around the world over the past two years," said the statement from Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's office.
