Two Azerbaijani citizens have reportedly been arrested for their roles in an alleged plot to assassinate the Israeli ambassador to Azerbaijan, Michael Lotem, and two employees at the Chabad Jewish school in the capital of Baku.
Rasim Farail Aliyev and Ali Huseynov have been charged with smuggling arms and explosives into the country. A third suspect, Balaqardash Dadashov, an Azerbaijani residing in Iran, is still at large.
Azerbaijan’s Security Ministry claimed that Iranian intelligence agencies contracted the three Azerbaijanis to perpetrate the assassinations for $150,000.Jewish Press Staff
