Argentinian intelligence officers arrested two Iranian nationals in Buenos Aires suspected of traveling on forged Israeli passports, local media reported. The pair, identified by local reports as Sajjad Samiel Naserani, 27, and Mashoreh Sabzali, 30, were arrested on Tuesday travelling on forged Israeli passports under the fake names of Netanel and Rivka Toledano.
