The Azeri ministry said it had arrested a cell that planned to "kill public activists," before it became apparent that the intended victims were two Israeli Chabad emissaries, a rabbi and a teacher employed by the "Chabad Or Avner" Jewish school in Baku”, said Israel’s Haaretz newspaper and added that the targets were Rabbi Shneor Segal and Rabbi Mati Lewis. "It was published that they originally planned to attack ’people who look Jewish and hold foreign passports,’ near the school, but when the school guards began suspecting them, they started monitoring the area where I live," Rabbi Shneor Segal told Haaretz. “The action was apparently planned as retaliation to the gunning down of Iranian nuclear scientists”, said the newspaper.

Last week, Azerbaijani Ministry of National Security issued a statement about detention of three men, and revealed their terrorist plans against the public activists. It was said that these persons were instructed from Iran.
