'I can clarify on behalf of the security establishment that this was an act of terror orchestrated by Iran against Israeli businesspeople living in Cyprus,' a spokesperson for Prime Minister Naftali Bennett confirmed.

The report on the assassination attempt first surfaced in Kuwait’s Al-Jarida news site which quoted an 'anonymous well-placed source' that claimed that the Kenyan security forces ordered a change in the route taken by Netanyahu and his delegation from Nairobi airport to their hotel.
