In The Aftermath of Attacks on Israeli Targets…

Malaysia will extradite to Thailand an Iranian citizen detained over suspected links to the attempted bomb attack in Bangkok on Tuesday, according to a report in the Bangkok Post Thursday.

Thai Foreign Minister Surapong Tovichakchaikul said that Masoud Sedaghatzadeh succeeded in fleeing Thailand, and was arrested by Malaysian authorities in Kuala Lumpur, while attempting to catch a flight to Iran.

Arrest warrants for all four individuals suspected of involvement in the attempted attack have been issued, and all have been identified as Iranian nationals: Sedaghatzadeh; Saeid Moradi, who blew off his legs in the attempted attack; Mohammad Kharzei, who was apprehended at Bangkok’s international airport while attempting to flee the country; and Rohani Leila, who is believed to have succeeded in retuning to Iran.

National police chief General Prewpan Dhamapong said that Kharzei had “partially confessed” and had admitted to knowing Moradi.

Iran has denied involvement in the bomb blasts.

In related news, the Times of India reported that Mossad head Tamir Pardo had visited New Delhi days before the bombing attack on the Israeli diplomatic vehicle, and lauded India as a safe destination for Israelis. The report, if true, reflects the complete lack of specific intelligence warnings in the days preceding the bombing, and the extent to which Israel was caught off guard. Still, the report cited a letter sent by senior officials at the Israeli embassy to the New Delhi police on February 1, in which they warned of the possible terror attacks against Israeli targets on the anniversary of Hizbollah commander Imad Mughniyah’s assassination.

Meanwhile, Israel’s envoy to the United Nations has lodged a complaint to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon over the week-long terror campaign against Israeli targets, insisting that Iran and Hizbollah are behind it.

“This campaign bears the unmistakable fingerprints of the Iranian regime and the highest echelons of the Hizbollah leadership,” wrote Ron Prosor.”Their actions constitute a clear threat to security and stability of Lebanon, to the Middle East, and to many countries that have been targeted.”
