Iranian Outlet Names Five Israeli Intel and Tech Experts as Potential Targets
Five Israelis could be targeted by Tehran, as the Islamic Republic continued to seethe on Monday, May 30, over the killing of a top Revolutionary Guards official, which it blames on Israel.
Under the headline “Zionists who must live in secret,” Iran claimed that the five, their families, and colleagues are “under close surveillance day and night” and that many others were potential targets as well.
Statements said the five were “involved in sabotage against Islamic countries and the assassination of activists of the Islamic Resistance.”
The named individuals are Amos Malka, a former head of the Israel Defense Forces Military Intelligence Directorate; Amir Levental, a cybersecurity expert; Gal Ganot, a former senior officer in the IDF’s 8200 intelligence unit; Inbal Arieli, a tech executive who is also a former 8200 officer; and Amit Meltzer, another cybersecurity expert.
The agency published photos of the five under the word “Wanted.”
Iranian officials have vowed to avenge the targeted killing of a senior Revolutionary Guard Corps member in Tehran last week, a shooting that Israeli officials claimed was carried out by Israeli intelligence. (TOI/ VFI News)
