According to an Israeli foreign ministry spokesman, staff at Israel’s embassies in India and Georgia were targeted by bombers on Monday. A bomb exploded at Israel’s New Delhi embassy, but in Tbilisi an explosive device was defused.

The bomb in New Delhi hit an embassy car and wounded a diplomat’s wife, who had just dropped her two children in daycare, according to Indian police. New Delhi television reported that two bikers were tailing the car and at one point one of them “hurled something at the car,” which exploded shortly after.

The woman was not immediately identified and there was no word on her condition.

“There was one attempted attack, and one successful, as it were,” said Paul Hirschson, a spokesman for Israel’s foreign ministry. “In both cases, the people concerned worked with the Israeli embassies.”

Hirschson said that a bomb was found in a car belonging to an embassy employee in Tbilisi, which was defused by local police.

IDF Chief of Staff Maj. Gen. Benny Ganz assembled an emergency evaluation meeting following the two attacks, with Military Intelligence Chief Gen. Aviv Cohavi, Operations Division Chief Gen. Ya’akov Aish, and Air force Chief Gen. Ido Eitan.

The blast came just one day after the fourth anniversary of the assassination of Hezbollah terrorist Imad Mugniyah. two people were wounded. Television footage showed a charred minivan with blue diplomatic plates, its rear door apparently blown out.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu today placed the responsibility for the attack in India and the attempted attack in Georgia on Iran and the Hezbollah. Speaking at a meeting of the Likud faction in the Knesset, Netanyahu said that Iran is an exporter of terror to the world and that Israel will continue “combat terror with a strong hand, patiently and systematically.”

Readiness at all Israeli missions around the world has been increased following today’s attacks. Diplomats received a directive to avoid using their own vehicles until all of them are checked by security officials.

  1. Benjilini says:

    It is clear to me, it is just a matter of time that my country, Israel, will hit the Iranian nuclear facility. When Israel hit the Iraqian nuclear facility, I believe many countries were cheering quietly as they will do again when the above takes place in Iran. All I know is if I was in charge in Israel, I would not have the so-called dictator-President Aminadajab last this long. His public outcry to destroy the land of my fathers along with its people on many occasions, should not be looked upon as the rantings of a fool. His scientists do indeed have the knowledge to create much harm and the entire world should be concerned. We MUST not be held hostage to world opinion, US financing, etc. If we don’t stand up for ourselves, who will stand for us. We MUST rely on the Almighty and not on our fellow humans. However, when there is mutual respect, total interaction and fair trade between countries, open borders for visitors without fair of harm, we will see on the ground that there could be one day, peace. Right now, Iran ,just wants a piece of us. This behavior can and should not be tolerated!
