Netanyahu blames Iran, Hezbollah for Israeli embassy attacks | Al Akhbar English
Israel has blamed Iran and Hezbollah for bomb attacks at the Israeli embassies in India and Georgia on Monday.
An embassy car exploded in a ball of fire in New Delhi, wounding two people, while Georgian police were able to defuse the Tbilisi device before it went off.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said the Islamic republic was responsible for both incidents.
“Iran is behind these attacks,” Netanyahu told members of his right-wing Likud party.
The attacks came a day after the fourth anniversary of the assassination of senior Hezbollah figure Imad Mughniyeh, himself killed a car bomb explosion in Damascus. Israel was widely suspected as responsible for the attack.
Hezbollah declined to comment on the accusation when questioned by Al-Akhbar.
