U.S. and Middle East officials have revealed that a recent plot to kill Americans in Azerbaijan was a small part of a larger plot by Iranian-linked operatives to kill foreign diplomats in at least seven countries. The targets included two Saudi officials, half-a-dozen Israelis and a group of Americans in Azerbaijan, officials said, according to Israel Hayom.

“They were going after individuals…They had names [of employees]. And they were interested in family members, too,” said a former U.S. State Department official who worked with the embassy in Baku, Azerbaijan.
