The arrest of an Iranian diplomat for alleged ties to terrorist activities in Europe is a recent example of Tehran using diplomatic cover to carry out such activities, a senior US Department of State official claimed in conference call.
“So when you look at what Iran has done just in Europe since 1984 and continuing up to the present, all nations need to exercise vigilance to protect themselves against the Iranian threat,” the State Department official said on Tuesday. “And this is only the most recent example of Iran using diplomatic cover to plot terrorism.”
Earlier on Tuesday, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Iranians in Europe were arrested for preparing to conduct a terror plot in Paris, France. An Iranian diplomat in Vienna was allegedly involved in a terror plot to bomb an Iranian opposition group rally in France on June 30.
Media reports on Friday revealed that the Netherlands expelled two Iranian diplomats amid suspicions that Iran is operating out of embassies to plot terrorism and assignations in Europe.

The State Department official added that the United States urges countries to make proper decisions about their own security and to stay vigilant including on Iran, which presents an enduring threat to nations.

The most recent plot in Europe by Iranians is another chapter in a long history that dates back to 1984, when Iran was starting these hijackings on commercial airliners, bombings, assassinations, the State Department official said.

Amusing, since it’s Iran threatening to destroy Israel on a regular basis. Didn’t an IRGC leader said, a few days ago, that they were putting up an Islamic army to invade Israel from Golan then destroy the Hebrew state? Iran even doesn’t try to hide its support to Hezb and Hamas, 2 militias having the destruction of Israel in their charter and wrecking (or trying to) havoc in this country. At the contrary, Israel PM just gave an open hand proposing to help Iranian water-crisis… Are Israelis arming Baluchistan separatists? Or Iranian Kurds? Obviously not. Who wants to destroy the… Read more »

“According to a 2012 report in Foreign Policy, Mossad agents disguised as Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) officers recruited members of Jundallah”
“According to Eric Draitser, “thanks to WikiLeaks, it also now documented fact that Israel has long since attempted to use Kurdish groups such as PJAK … against Iran.””
“US officials confirm that MEK was financed, trained, and armed by Israel in killing Iranian nuclear scientists.”
