Iran Attempted To Lure Former Israeli Defense Minister, Other Security Officials & Academics Abroad

File image.

On May 19, the Israeli Shin Bet security agency announced that it had uncovered an Iranian intelligence plot to lure former Israeli security officials and academics abroad.

In a statement, the agency said that Iranian intelligence agents used fictitious email accounts to contact Israeli officials while impersonating real-life academics, journalists, businessmen and philanthropists.

Some of the names used by the Iranian agents were Swiss researcher Oliver Thränert, head of the Center for Security Studies and British Journalist Con Coughlin, defense editor at The Daily Telegraph. In another attempt, an agent presented himself as “Nikolai” the assistant of Russian billionaire Andrey Andreev.

The Iranian agents attempted to gather information on the targeted Israeli officials and academics or invite them to conferences abroad, possibly to abduct or hurt them.

“It is a well-known method of operation of the Iranian intelligence and security bodies, headed by the Intelligence Organization of the Revolutionary Guards, Quds Force, and the Ministry of Intelligence,” the Shin Bet said.

All the Israeli officials and academics who were contacted by the Iranian agents did not respond and immediately alerted security forces.

One of the Israeli officials who were targeted by the Iranian agents was former Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon, who reportedly understood that he was being lured and immediately alerted the Shin Bet.

The plot was likely related to Iran’s attempts to avenge General Qasem Soleimani and nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh. Soleimani was killed near the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, in a US drone strikes on 3 January 2020. Fakhrizadeh was assassinated in the Iranian city of Absard, reportedly by the Israeli intelligence, on November 27 of the same year.

This was not the first time the Iranian intelligence has allegedly attempted to spy and prepare attacks on Israeli targets through the cyber space. Several similar plots were uncovered by Israeli security forces in the last few years.

Early on in May, the Shin Bet security uncovered an attempt by the Iranian intelligence to recruit Israeli citizens via a fake Facebook account.

I agree 100%, IMHO.

The ‘plot’ has all the hallmarks of a cretinous Khazar psy-op. Only rats, Boris Johnson, and zionists would believe such nonsense.

AzovNazhits, from hero to zero

Tehran should coordinate these retaliatory mission with China and Russia to have a better chance of success.

– Dammit Haji, you spooked Moshe Ya’lon!

– Seyyed, I did nothing, I swear. He was already freaked out, I mean, for the love of god look at his face!

– Hmmm,,, What to do… We needed Moshe Ya’lon… What to do without Moshe Ya’lon… Moshe Ya’lon… DAMMIT HAJI!!

Are they really stupid or just stupidly think we are stupid? So we Impersonated real people from real places that can be easily checked without actually having their cooperation, all to “luuuure” high profile people from a very paranoid regime to -of all places- UK or US in order to do something evil to them, I guess. Because we can’t possibly go over there inside their houses or even their streets, no sir!

—- Our boys and girls are all over the place over there as theirs are here. The difference is which side is able to find those people. When you find them, you don’t catch immediately to make a scene, you patiently track and wait until you know all their network, then you’ll have a simultaneous and very coordinated operation to fish them all in one go. Now the real work begins…

If they are so happy to recognize that someone made a prank on them, imagine their delight if they could catch a certain birdie! ;)

Nyah, not me. Haha! Imma nobody mindin’ mah own hat.

“Early on in May, the Shin Bet security uncovered an attempt by the Iranian intelligence to recruit Israeli citizens via a fake Facebook account.”

“In a statement, the agency said that Iranian intelligence agents used fictitious email accounts to contact Israeli officials while impersonating real-life academics, journalists, businessmen and philanthropists.”

Does it sound BS? Because it is. Remember people don’t believe Zion and the fact I have to say it shows how fuking rtded some people are… What, did you all forget that Iran was spying on Benny Gantz?

Did none of you also find out that after that Zion started BS-ing about “uncovered Iranian spy network” bla bla bla. Both of those cases sound BS because you don’t just say “oh we find out what you are doing”- no, wait and see the network grow and find out how your enemy is running their network, and finish the bad blood with them at the end.

Iran for a long time had to deal with MI6, CIA, MeK, Mossad, and other Western spy networks – They aren’t new to this game at all. But Zion on the other hand freely set up spy networks with the help of the host country (mostly NGOs). Even hearing these claims from Zion makes me laugh – I could have done that and Zion knows this as well… emails, FB what is next discord for young ones… I can see these clowns saying they stop the Iranian spy network on Fortnite.

MEK are commies. They have fought against Israel and in support of Saddam.

Ahson

This is yet another of your oversights. Now I’m getting tired of educating you, or I should say, we are getting tired of it. When will you pick up your game? What MKO is today is who pays it what they want it to be no? Your comments are becoming like those lower caste sunni/ wahabbi muzlim on Press TV I encounter. Them motherfuckers are so fucking uneducated and stupid, you just want to kill them on da spot.

Chris Gr

You are a troll. You cannot see the obvious truth.

Ahson

MKO is on CIA payroll Einstein!

Chris Gr

It is called MEK not MKO. And if you see, MEK is supported by the so called Eastern bloc countries.

JJ345

Ahson, you shouldn’t talk to him, he is a troll just ignore him. That’s how you kill trolls.

Do you talk to JHK – no, Chris is very much like him. Also, remember you are talking to a young lad – doesn’t matter what you say, he would just start talking about other things.

People here don’t really talk to him for a reason. He is an attention seeker and a troll, just ignore him.

What relation do I have to that jihadi nazi?

“People here don’t really talk to him for a reason”

You are lying. Many people are harassing me here. You just lost the debate and you are making excuses.

JJ345

Like who talked to you kid? Huh? Fuk off.

You and JHK are very much similar – when it comes to commenting on matters. I’m sure your smooth brain can’t process what I said, so just move on. BTW I was informing Ahson not you.

You still can’t understand English kiddo – Dose “debate” means BS-ing to you?

You are going to cry about your English level so here I prove it to you, “You just lost the debate”. I didn’t talk to you at all – what do you mean then? What “debate” did I just lose?

You didn’t mean that? Maybe improve your English then.

Also, do make me laugh and tell me what excuses I made here.

“You are lying. Many people are harassing me here.”

Oh boo hoo hoo – You are lying. No one talks to you, you reply to others 99% of the time – when you lost the argument you start acting like a child and change the topic. People calling you out for it, is not harassment, Amber Heard wannabe. I have for so long called you out for that and people aren’t rtded like you. Even now, I didn’t talk to you, you replied to my comment to Ashon.

Clown pls, I have dealt with more rtded people than you ever be. But you aren’t fun at all, you are young and don’t know much. It’s not even fun to talk to you…you are a Zion.

Let me be clear about what I mean by “you are a Zion” – I have talked to so many g0ys that I can tell if I see one commenting. You are from that neighbourhood – boring and lying your kashruth asshole 24-7.

Goodbye, I wasn’t even going to reply to your bitch kashruth ass – I feel bad for you, I hope your real life isn’t as boring and dull – don’t become the next g0y dancing.

How much of a pathetic creature you really are. JHK supports jihadis and nazis. No relation with him. Your English is horrible also. And what if I reply? Will you tell me when to reply or not? Don’t we have freedom of speech?

You don’t have any reason at all, just some sentimentalism. And I am not playing a victim or something like that, on the other hand, you are complaining like a little girl when you are losing. And you are losing not because you believe different things but because you have no reason at all.

And you are fixated on zion all the time. Probably you don’t know the whole truth and you are finding a simplistic and reductionistic way of solving your problems.

Ahson and all these people, like Icarus Tanovic or JHK or Cuckmander Hebrew or you, are mindless trolls and basement dwellers and probably also incels who are blaming others for your failures.

Bacha bazis are doing that.

Ahson

bache bazi is in Al-Baqistan and Al-Afghanistan. You know this right? Haven’t we discussed this before? It’s a cultural thing over there right? Do you know what Iranians do to bache baz?

Chris Gr

Also in Central Asia. Iran is part of this.

Ahson

So now Iran is part of central Asia?

Chris Gr

Yes

Chris Gr

Iran should explain their support of terrorist regimes, like the one that did genocide in Darfur, or terrorist groups like Hamas.

Iran is slowly coming out of its Izlamic stupor. It’ll take time……be patient, like I am. Once Israel gets subdued, which is inevitable just due to the sheer human mass of loyalists Iran is fielding, not to mention it being a key Iranian propaganda goal…….things will calm down…….Israel is itty bitty easy doc, not even a challenge……..you know where the real prize lies no?…….lol…….you know exactly what I mean no?……lol

Israel is opposed only by radical socialist or radical islamist regimes. And radical socialists and radical islamists are fighting each other.

Ahson

I don’t see one instance where Iran has taken a wrong step toward Israel. Not yet. And its also true vice versa. However, Iran has well and truly asserted itself over a vast swath of territory, via proxy. Israel being that its tiny, has pretty much come to terms with that. Your radical islamists are sitting in your neighboring Al-Baqistan and Al-Afghanistan! yes, them ones who want to subjugate your India with that Ghazva hendu and establish the Kaliphate of Rashidoom again. Force convert them to Islam. Heck, Iran is on very friendly terms with your India no? yet here you constantly run yer gob on Iran being radical? despite having visited the country a number of times?……lol

Chris Gr

No, Iran supports the Kashmiri insurgents.

Ahson

You mean via lip service?…….lol. You do realize that slowly a movement to revert Indian muzlims is picking up steam? Could it be done on a mass scale? if its state backed?

If you see the first Ayatollah was Kashmiri and the current Ayatollah is Azeri.

Ahson
