Jewish communities in the US and Argentina on Wednesday congratulated law enforcement officials in Washington DC who earlier announced the foiling of a terror plot targeting the Israeli embassies in their respective countries.

Jewish groups in the US said the suspected conspiracy by two Iranian men to kill the Saudi ambassador and blow up the Israeli embassy in Washington was consistent with the violence espoused by the Islamic Republic.

 “We have long expressed concern about the ties between international terrorist networks and the Iranian Revolutionary Guard, which gave direction to this plot through its Al-Quds Brigades," said Richard Stone and Malcolm Hoenlein of the Conference of Presidents of Major Jewish American Organizations.  "The target was the Saudi Ambassador to the United States, although it appears that other targets may have been designated as well.”

The American Jewish Committee expressed gratitude to US security services for averting the said attack on Washington.

"The Iranian regime’s terror arm reaches far, demanding constant vigilance,” said its Executive Director David Harris. “Thankfully, our intelligence and law enforcement agencies prevented a terror disaster in our nation’s capital.”
