Israeli missions urged to beef up security amid fears of blowback after Iran hit

19 2 0

The director-general of the Foreign Ministry sent a letter Monday to all Israeli diplomatic missions urging them to up their security protocols and remain alert following the assassination of top Iranian nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh, Tehran’s finger-pointing at Israel and the Islamic Republic’s vow to avenge his death.

Citing the “events over the weekend,” Alon Ushpiz called on missions to maintain “the highest possible level of preparedness and vigilance for any unusual activity in the area of the mission, at the homes of families and at Jewish and Israeli community centers,” according to the Kan public broadcaster.

In a rare message, Ushpiz said he wanted to “emphasize the severity of the events and the need for all of us to guarantee the safety and health of all mission employees and their family members, without exception.”
