Mossad Helped Foil Iranian Terror Attack in France

(Ynet News) Itamar Eichner - The Mossad, Israel's Institute for Intelligence and Special Operations, helped thwart a major Iranian terrorist attack in France last month, Israel's Channel 2 reports.< Mossad agents uncovered intelligence about an Iranian plan to bomb the annual National Council of Resistance of Iran (NCRI) rally in Villepinte, a suburb of Paris, on June 30. The attack was thwarted thanks to cooperation between Israel and Germany, France and Belgium, where members of the Iranian cell were arrested. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, "even as Iran planned a terrorist attack on French soil in Europe, it was no coincidence that this attack was thwarted. The commander of this terror cell was an Iranian diplomat in Austria....I call on the leaders of Europe: Stop financing the terrorist regime that is financing terrorism against you on your soil. Enough with the policy of appeasement and weakness regarding Iran."
