Operation Red Coalition disrupts Iranian terror plot against Saudi and Israeli embassies in Washington

Federal agents working as part of Operation Red Coalition have reportedly disrupted a ‘significant’ plot to commit acts of terrorism against the Saudi and Israeli embassies in Washington DC. There are reports that the plot is linked to Iran.

The attack was targeting the Saudi and Israeli embassies. It’s believed that the plan was to launch bomb attacks on the targets. The Saudi ambassador to the US, Adel Al-Jubeir, was reportedly to be targeted and assassinated.

It remains to be seen how Saudi Arabia and Israel respond to the news. The Iranian government is likely to issue a denial. Full details of the plot have not yet been revealed; nor has it been indicated why Iran would risk what would amount to a significant escalation of its hostility towards Saudi Arabia, Israel and the United States.
