Mossad chief Tamir Pardo visited New Delhi just days before an attack on Israeli officials in the Indian capital this week, Indian media reported on Thursday, highlighting the extent to which Israeli intelligence was in the dark regarding possibility of a terror attack taking place in the country.
On Monday, the wife of an Israeli diplomat was moderately wounded when a car bomb exploded outside of Israel’s embassy in New Delhi.
The attack was one of three targeting Israeli officials abroad this week, with failed attempts to strike at diplomats reported the same day in Tbilisi and on the following day in Bangkok.
Neither attack was preceded by a specific intelligence warning.
