Four hurt in bombing of Israeli Embassy car in India

Four people were wounded when an explosive device attached to an Israeli Embassy van detonated near the Israeli mission in New Delhi, officials said Monday.

It was one of two explosives discovered on Israeli Embassy vehicles Monday. The other was found on an embassy car in Tblisi, Georgia, and that device was detonated in a controlled explosion with no injuries, an Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman said.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu blamed both incidents on Iran, calling it "the biggest exporter of terror in the world."

"The Israeli government and her security organizations are continuing to operate together with local security services against these acts of terror," Netanyahu said. "We will continue to act in a strong way, systematically and steadfastly."

One of the wounded in New Delhi is the wife of an Israeli defense wing officer and the other is the Indian driver of the car, said Syed Akbaruddin, a spokesman for the Indian Ministry of External Affairs. He said both were being treated and "are OK." Two others in a vehicle next to the van sustained minor injuries, according to BK Gupta, an Indian police official.

      This should be due to some kind of internal conflict between Israeli authorities. I believe the embassies were attacked because of internal rift between Lieberman team and Mossad.. The evidence, no one was killed or seriously injured...

    Seems to me a game of 'tit for tat'.
    Israel kills Iran's scientists ( 5 according to CIA) and they try retaliating?
    Exporting terrorism says Netanyahu.

    normally I do not respond to posts which use abusive language. Just so that you know they do not rattle me one bit. So better luck next time to you too.

    However your post demonstrates that truth does rattle most folks most times.

    Thanks @leeintulsa
    I surely didn't expect an irrational blurt from you, knowing your posts.
    The truth of the matter is that Israel is doing its best or worst to provoke Iran into committing something stupid so that we are dragged into a totally unwanted third war in the M.East. Unfortunately we unwisely are always in a 'lockstep' support for their actions.
    This has to stop.

    Yet another war in that region which we can hardly afford would seriously hurt our long term strategic interests and put our troops in jepardy. Further letting us loose whatever influence we have left to other powers.

    i think this is just a dance these people are committed to because it pleases their god, or at least the people who tell them how their god feels.

    if iran and israel had peace, they'd lose control. they kinda need each other..
