Jerusalem, Mar 29 (PTI) Israeli espionage agency Mossad and the Greek police have collaborated in foiling a plot to carry out a massive terror attack targeting Israelis and Jews in Greece and police are continuing searches in Athens and other parts of the country following the arrest of two Pakistani suspects in the case.

In a statement, the Israeli Prime Minister's Office (PMO) said Tuesday that the two Pakistani nationals - arrested by Greek police - were part of an Iranian terror network.

"The affair that was uncovered in Greece is a severe case that was successfully thwarted by the Greek security forces. It was an additional attempt by Iran to perpetrate terrorism against Israeli and Jewish targets abroad," the PMO said.
