Iran’s Arabic language al-Alam news channel reports that there was an assassination attempt on Secretary of State Hilary Clinton during her recent visit to Israel. Clinton’s motorcade was allegedly fired upon while traveling on a road to Jerusalem.

The attempted attack was not reported by the establishment media in the United States or Europe.
During the trip to Israel during the last leg of a 12-day, eight-nation tour, Clinton met with President Shimon Peres and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. The Israeli leaders talked with the U.S. Secretary of State about Iran, its alleged nuclear weapons program, and the response to it by the United States and Israel.
Clinton also addressed Syria and said the United States is working on a new sanctions resolution in the United Nations “with consequences.” She again said that Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad must step down.
