Israel claimed it had provided information that led to thwart the assassination of an Iranian opposition leader in Denmark, the Anadolu Agency reported yesterday.

“The Mossad passed intelligence information to the authorities in Copenhagen that led to the arrest of two Iranian nationals who prepared explosive devices for the assassination,” Anadolu reported the Israeli Public Broadcasting Corporation (KAN) saying.

KAN did not give details about the Iranian opposition leader, the Iranian nationals or when the information was given.

During the last two months, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has repeated that his country’s intelligence services provided information to European countries that helped foil Iranian attacks in the region.
