Iran Attacks Israeli Diplomat

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu directly blamed Iran for an attack on an Israeli diplomatic vehicle that was targeted in New Delhi. The blast injured four, including the wife of an Israeli defense representative working at the Embassy. Last month, Mostafa Ahmadi-Roshan—an Iranian scientist, was killed when motorcyclists placed a sticky bomb on his Peugeot car—It is believed Israel was behind the assassination. The Iranian sponsored assassin in India reportedly used the same method of attack in New Delhi.

The attempted killings followed a warning from Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, earlier this month that the Islamic Republic would retaliate against international sanctions and would back any nation or group that sought to “confront and fight” Israel.

Mr. Netanyahu told a meeting of his Likud party MPs that “Iran is behind these attacks and it is the largest terror exporter in the world”. He also blamed Iran for recent plots to attack Israeli targets in Thailand and Azerbaijan that were prevented. The Israeli leader believes that the militant Islamist Hezbollah movement was also involved.

Israel’s Foreign Ministry is confirming that it foiled a similar attack on an Israeli Embassy vehicle in Tbilisi, the capital of Georgia. The bomb was discovered before it went off.

The apostle Paul wrote, “But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come” (2 Timothy 3:1). We are entering those perilous days. The Middle East is churning with tension.
