Plot to Kill U.S. General Foiled

A plot by the terrorism-sponsoring Iranian government to kill a U.S. general has been foiled, according to a report in the Jerusalem Post.

The report noted that the scheme also targeted an Israeli diplomat as well as a journalist in France.

The Post said Israeli’s intelligence corps, the Mossad, was operating in Iran and apprehended and interrogated an Iranian national who was “leading a plot” to kill the three.

A recording revealed that a suspect identified as Mansour Rasouli admitted he had been ordered to establish a cell to assassinate a worker at the Israeli Consulate in Istanbul, a U.S. general stationed in Germany and a journalist in France, the report said.

The report said the planned attack revealed the threat of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, a terror-supporting organization that Joe Biden’s administration has been lobbied to remove from the list of international terror groups as part of his efforts to restore the failed Iran nuclear deal.
