Following the alleged incident, Kenyan security forces arrested two people suspected of planning an attack against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s convoy.

Kenya’s security forces allegedly foiled an attempt to assassinate Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu by attacking his convoy during his visit to the state as part of a five-day trip to Africa, the Kuwaiti daily newspaper al-Jarida reported Thursday.

An anonymous source told the newspaper that on Tuesday, shortly before the Prime Minister left the local airport on his way to his hotel in Nairobi, the Kenyan authorities informed Netanyahu’s security guards that the convoy must change its route.

The surprising alert, according to the source, aroused arguments between Netanyahu’s security guards and the Kenyan security forces. More
