Iran is behind a car bomb attack on Israeli officials in India as well as a thwarted attack in Tbilisi, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said on Monday, adding that Israel would continue to act against the international terror Iran produces.
Netanyahu’s comments came after a blast near Israel’s New Delhi embassy left the wife of an Israeli diplomat moderately wounded.
The incidents on Monday come one day after the fourth anniversary of the assassination of Hezbollah’s deputy leader, Imad Mughniyah, a killing the Islamist organization blames on Israel.
Speaking following the attack in India and the thwarted attack in Georgia, Netanyahu blamed recent attempts on Israeli officials abroad on “Iran and its client Hezbollah,” saying that standing behind Monday’s attacks is “Iran, the world’s greatest exporter of terror.”
