Kenyan security forces arrested two Iranian nationals who, they say, may have planned to attack U.S. or Israeli targets in the country.

Security forces found 33 pounds of a powerful explosive after they arrested the Iranians in June, according to the Associated Press. The explosives were in Mombasa, a coastal city. The AP reported that several hotels on the coast are owned by Israelis.

“There are no limits to Iranian terrorism,” said a statement from the office of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. “The international community needs to fight the greatest exporter of terrorism in the world.”
