    A woman diplomat and the vehicle's driver were reportedly injured in the blast.

    Incidentally, the incident comes a day after the fourth death anniversary of Imad Mughniyah, the deputy leader of Hezbollah who was killed in a car blast in 2008.

    Hezbollah had accused Israel of being responsible for the blast, but the Jewish nation had denied any involvement.

    Two attacks target Israeli embassies in Georgia, India

    By YAAKOV KATZ 02/13/2012 13:57

    Day after 4th anniversary of Hezbollah commander's assassination, Israeli diplomat's wife injured in New Delhi; Georgian police neutralize 2nd car bomb; sending security reinforcements overseas is being considered.

    [​IMG]

    A day after the fourth anniversary of the assassination of Hezbollah’s military commander, two seemingly coordinated attacks were launched on Monday against Israeli embassies overseas.

    In the first attack, the wife of an Israeli diplomat was injured when a bomb exploded in her car in New Delhi, India. The woman succeeded in driving to the Israeli embassy where she was evacuated to a nearby hospital.

    Local authorities were investigating the possibility that the bomb was planted under the car or alternatively that an assassin on a motorbike attached it to the vehicle as it was driving.

    In the second attack, an embassy staffer in Tbilisi, Georgia discovered a bomb underneath his car as he was driving to the embassy Monday morning. The staffer – a local Georgian national – heard something during the drive, pulled over to the side of the road, noticed the bomb and called local authorities. The bomb was dismantled before exploding.

    Israeli security authorities raised the level of alert worldwide following the attacks. Security officials said that it was possible that the attacks were connected to the fourth anniversary of the assassination of Hezbollah military chief Imad Mughniyeh who was killed in Damascus on February 12, 2008.

    Diplomats worldwide have been ordered to check in and citizens currently overseas have been asked to do the same, reporting where they are and what their status is.

    Security at embassies is being boosted by local police and military forces and Israel was considering the possibility of sending reinforcements from Israel. The Shin Bet (Israel Security Agency) was holding security assessments at its headquarters in Israel.

    The attacks were believed to be coordinated. Iran and Hezbollah have tried a number of times in recent years to avenge Mughniyeh’s assassination.

    Israel raised its level of alert in early January surrounding delegations overseas out of concern that Iran and Hezbollah are trying to launch an attack ahead of the fourth anniversary of the assassination Mughniyeh. Attacks were recently thwarted in Azerbaijan and in Thailand.

    Other attempts have included a plan to shoot down an Israeli airliner over Turkey with shoulder-to-air missiles and a plan to attack Israeli tourists in the Sinai.

    Responding to news of the attack, Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman said Israel will not allow terrorism to affect its agenda.

    "It just shows that israel and its citizens face terror inside and outside of Israel," Liberman said. "We deal with it every day. We know how to identify exactly who is responsible for the attack and who carried it out."

    "We will not allow this to affect our agenda," the minister concluded.

    Last month, IDF Chief of Staff Lt.-Gen. Benny Gantz warned Hezbollah on Tuesday not to test Israel's resolve by perpetrating a terror attack against an Israeli target overseas.

    "We are witnessing efforts by Hezbollah and other hostile elements to perpetrate a brutal terror attack far from Israel," Gantz said at the time."I recommend to everyone not to test our resolve."

    "Lieberman: Israel knows how to identity those responsible"

    Israeli missions in India, Georgia targeted

    Explosion heard near Israeli Embassy in New Delhi; diplomat's wife injured. Explosives found near Israeli embassy building in Tbilisi neutralized safely. Lieberman: Israel knows how to identity those responsible

    Aviel Magnezi, AP

    An explosion tore through an Israeli diplomat's car in the vicinity of the Israeli Embassy in New Delhi, India, Monday. One woman was injured.

    The blast came just one day after the fourth anniversary marking the assassination of Hezbollah arch-terrorist Imad Mugniyah.




    Israeli Embassy Spokesman David Goldfarb confirmed that an explosion took out a diplomat's car and that one woman was injured, but did not identify the victim. Foreign Ministry Spokesman Yigal Palmor also refused to discuss the identity of woman or the extent of the injuries, saying only that the Foreign Ministry was "looking into the incident and cooperation with local security forces is excellent.

    Initial details suggest that the injured woman is an Israeli diplomat's wife. The explosion apparently took place after she dropped of their children off at a local preschool. She suffered minor injuries and was rushed to a nearby medical center for treatment.

    Indian police said only that a car was on fire on the street outside the embassy. New Delhi media reported that two people were wounded. Television footage showed a charred minivan with blue diplomatic plates, its rear door apparently blown out.



    Explosives were also found near the Israeli Embassy building in the Georgian capital of Tbilisi. The device was neutralized safely.

    Israeli Ambassador to Georgia Yitzhak Gerber told Ynet that "We don't have all the details yet. The local authorities are looking into it, but so far it doesn’t look too dramatic.

    "From what we know now, there was an attempt to place an explosive device on a car belonging to one of our local employees. He noticed it while he was on his way to us, and alerted the authorities. The device was defused."

    Gerber added that "these kinds of things are part of the job. It's very unpleasant, but it's always in the back of our mind. Considering that yesterday was the day we bid farewell to Imad Mugniyah this was to be expected."

    Shota Uitashvili, Spokesman for the Georgian Interior Ministry, said the driver noticed a package attached to his car's undercarriage on Monday and called police. Police found a grenade in the package and it was defused, Utiashvili said.

    Israel placed its foreign missions on high alert ahead of the Feb. 12 anniversary of the assassination. The Foreign Ministry said that its missions worldwide were been briefed on the events.

    Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman was briefed of the events immediately. "Israeli diplomats are on the front lines," he said adding that Israel "knows how to identity who is responsible for the blast."

    Following the attack in India and the attempted attack in Georgia, Israeli diplomats have been advised against travelling in cars in the immediate future.

    The incident followed reports by Azeri media, which suggested that the Israeli ambassador in Baku was the target of a terror plot.

    Israel says bombs target embassies in India, Georgia

    (Reuters) - Bombers targeted staff at Israel's embassies in India and Georgia on Monday, the foreign ministry said, with a bomb going off in New Delhi but a second device in Tbilisi defused.

    Indian police said a bomb hit an embassy car and wounded a woman. She 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."

    He also confirmed that a bomb had been found in a car belonging to a staffer at the embassy in the Georgian capital Tbilisi, which was defused by local police.

    Hirschson said the Israeli ambassador to India was not hurt in the New Delhi attack.

    Israel had put its foreign missions on especially high alert ahead of the February 12 anniversary of the assassination, in 2008, of the military mastermind of Lebanon's Hezbollah guerrillas, linked to the Shi'ite Islamist group Hezbollah, Imad Moughniyeh.

    Iranian-backed Hezbollah had vowed to avenge Moughniyeh's death in a Damascus car-bombing, blaming it on Israel.

    Israelis had also warned of possible reprisals ordered by Tehran for the assassination of several scientists involved in Iran's controversial nuclear program. No-one has claimed responsibility for the Iran killings.

    Wife of Israeli diplomat wounded in car blast near New Delhi embassy


    Suspected attack comes with 2 other reports suspected attacks in Amsterdam, Georgian capital of Tbilisi; both incidents come one day after 4-year anniversary of Hezbollah's deputy leader's assassination.

    By Barak Ravid and Amos Harel

    The wife of an Israeli diplomat was moderately wounded on Monday when a car bomb exploded outside of Israel's embassy in the Indian capital of New Delhi, Haaretz has learned.

    The incident came one day after the fourth anniversary marking the assasination ofHezbollah's deputy leader, Imad Mughniyah, which the Islamist organization blames on Israel.

    [​IMG]

    Also on Monday, a Georgian worker employed by the Israeli embassy in Tbilisi alerted police after reportedly hearing strange sounds while driving his car. Security forces located an explosive device underneath the vehicle and proceeded to safely neutralize it.

    Israel's Foreign Ministry has in response to the events instructed all of its diplomats to stop using their vehicles until they are checked by security officials.

    Foreign Minister Avigdor said immediately following the incidents that Israel would not toleratean attack on its officials abroad, adding that Monday's incidents show Israel and its citizens face a daily threat of terror, both "physical and diplomatic."

    Last year, Israeli embassies throughout the world received several suspected terror threats that coincided with the third anniversary of Mughniyah's death.

    Mughniyah was killed when his car exploded in 2008. Hezbollah blames Israel for his assassination, but Israel denies any involvement. The threat was believed to be directed at embassies in Africa, Southeast Asia and Caucasus.

    The bureau cautioned the Israeli public that because of the increased threat of terror attacks against Israelis abroad, travels certain destinations should be avoided, including Egypt, Turkey, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Armenia, Côte d'Ivoire, Mauritania and Venezuela.

    Just last month, the head of Israel’s Counterterrorism Bureau said that it has no concrete information regarding a possible terrorist attack on Israeli tourists in Bulgaria.

    The bureau emphasized that the initial warning from the head of security at the Transportation Ministry regarding increased security in European countries took place over three weeks ago.

    However, the Transportation Ministry insisted the threats are credible and that Israeli tourists in Europe should be vigilant.

    Earlier, Danny Shenar, head of security at the Transportation Ministry, told Haaretz that he asked European security services "to tighten security around groups of Israelis in various resorts like ski resorts and hotels." According to Shenar, "I asked to formally tighten security because I am worried about a security-related incident."

    Shenar added: "I've asked security services in Europe to escort groups of Israelis and conduct searches with police dogs."

    The "attacks against Israeli embassies abroad... just means that the State of Israel and its citizens face a daily threat of terror, both physical and diplomatic," Lieberman said in response to the incidents. "We know exactly who is responsible for the attack and who planned it, and we're not going to take it lying down."

    "Today's events remind us again how Israeli diplomats stand at the forefront of the fight which Israel is leading around the world," he added.

    The incidents on Monday come one day after the fourth anniversary of the assasination of Hezbollah's deputy leader, Imad Mughniyah, a killing the Islamist organization blames on Israel.

    We will not tolerate such attacks and have ability to track down attackers: Israel

    JERUSALEM: Israel's foreign ministry has condemned the attack on Israelis in India and Georgia and said that Israel had the ability to track down those who carried it out.

    Assailants had attacked Israeli diplomats in India and Georgia in near-simultaneous strikes on Monday, wounding two people in a car bombing in New Delhi, officials said.

    Israel's foreign ministry said an attempted car bombing in Georgia was thwarted when the device was discovered before it went off.

    There was no immediate claim of responsibility. But suspicion fell on Iran and its Lebanese proxy, Hezbollah, which both have deep grievances against the Jewish state.

    Hezbollah recently marked the anniversary of the 2008 assassination of one of its commanders, Imad Mughniyeh, in a bombing widely believed to have been carried out by Israel. And Iran suspects Israeli involvement in a series of killings of officials and scientists involved in its controversial nuclear program.

    The explosion in India tore through a diplomat's car, Israeli officials said. The Foreign Ministry did not identify the wounded, but Indian officials said the driver and a diplomat's wife were injured.

    The explosion took place in the late afternoon close to the embassy, said embassy spokesman David Goldfarb. Television footage showed a charred minivan with blue diplomatic plates, its rear door apparently blown out.

    Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor would not discuss who was injured nor the extent of the injuries because it was a security matter.

    "We are looking into the incident and cooperation with local security forces is excellent," Palmor said from Israel.

    Authorities in the former Soviet republic of Georgia said an explosive device was planted on the car of a driver for the Israeli Embassy.

    Shota Utiashvili, spokesman for the Georgian Interior Ministry, said the driver noticed a package attached to his car's undercarriage on Monday and called police.

    Police found a grenade in the package and it was defused, Utiashvili said. He did not specify where the car was parked when the device was discovered.

    There was no immediate comment from Iran. But speculation will undoubtedly be raised over the possibility of Iranian-linked payback for assassinations on nuclear scientists and other covert plots that Tehran has blamed on Israel's spy agency Mossad and Western allies.

    Last month, a director of Iran's main uranium enrichment site was killed in a blast from a magnetic bomb placed on his car. The official, Mostafa Ahmadi Roshan, was at least the fifth member of Iran's scientific community killed in apparent targeted attacks in the past two years.

    Iran accused Israel of being behind the attacks. Later, Iran's official news agency IRNA said it had "evidence" of alleged US and British involvement in the Roshan killing.

    In a signal that Iran could strike back for Roshan's killing, Gen. Masoud Jazayeri, the spokesman for Iran's Joint Armed Forces Staff, was quoted by the semiofficial ISNA news agency last month as saying that Tehran was "reviewing the punishment'' of "behind-the-scene elements'' involved in the assassination.

    "Iran's response will be a tormenting one for supporters of state terrorism,'' he said, without elaborating. "The enemies of the Iranian nation, especially the United States, Britain and the Zionist regime, or Israel, have to be held responsible for their activities."

    Iran also has blamed the US and allies for a sophisticated computer virus, known as Stuxnet, that was programmed to disrupt the centrifuges used in uranium enrichment. Iran said the virus was detected in its systems, but claimed no serious setbacks occurred.

    Israel embassy staff targeted in India, Georgia

    Israel embassy staff targeted in India, Georgia

    NEW DELHI: Israeli diplomats were targeted by bomb attacks in Delhi and Tbilisi on Monday, officials said, with two people injured in New Delhi when an embassy car exploded in a ball of fire.

    The car which blew up in a high security area of central Delhi, a short distance from the Israeli embassy and Prime Minister Manmohan Singh's official residence :)shocked:), was badly burnt.

    Police in the Georgian capital defused an explosive device found in the car of an Israeli embassy employee, the ex-Soviet state's interior ministry said.

    Ravi Singh, a petrol pump attendant who was standing on the other side of the road from the Delhi blast, said: "There was a huge explosion. There was a woman and a driver in the car which was burning and the women was dragged out."

    Israeli embassy spokesman in New Delhi David Goldfarb said that one of the injured occupants of the car was an Israeli diplomat but declined to comment further. An Israeli security official said the diplomat was a woman.

    Indian police cordoned off the area surrounding the burnt-out station wagon and investigators were at the site.

    "We are examining the materials at the site and we are yet to get the experts' report so we still cannot say how the blast occurred," New Delhi police spokesman Rajan Bhagat said.

    He said there were no details about the condition of the two injured people but television reports said that one was in a critical condition.

    "There was an explosion in an Israeli diplomat's car but we don't know how it happened, Goldfarb said.

    "We are in constant contact with the local authorities."

    Israeli foreign ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor told in Jerusalem that Israeli authorities were investigating the blast in New Delhi as well as the incident Tbilisi.

    "We are looking into both of these incidents and cooperating with the local law enforcement agencies," Palmor said.

    The attacks came between the anniversaries of the deaths of two top Hezbollah militants, Imad Mughniyeh and Abbas Mussawi, which spark annual travel warnings from the Israeli government.

    Top Hezbollah commander Mughniyeh was killed in a car bombing in Damascus on February 12, 2008, while Mussawi, the group's secretary general, was killed by an Israeli missile on February 16, 1992.

    Both attacks were blamed on Israel and sparked vows of revenge from the Shiite militia group.

    A Jewish centre run by the the ultra-Orthodox Lubavitch movement was among the targets in the November 2008 attacks in Mumbai, which India blames on the Pakistani-based Lashkar-e-Taiba, in which 10 gunmen killed at least 188 people.

    The last militant strike in New Delhi was last September when a bomb outside the high court killed 14 people -- the latest in a series of blasts that has shaken public confidence in the Indian government's counter-terror capabilities.

    Blast near Israel Embassy in New Delhi, 3 injured

    [​IMG]

    An Israeli embassy car on Monday exploded close to the mission here in a suspected coordinated terror attack after a car bomb involving an Israeli embassy vehicle in Georgian capital of Tbilisi was defused.

    According to initial investigations, two motorcycle borne youths tailed the Israeli Embassy vehicle on Aurangzeb Road in the high security zone, not far from Prime Minister’s residence, and allegedly placed “something” in the rear of the car when it stopped at a traffic signal.

    Minutes later, there was an explosion and the Toyota innova bearing number 109-CD-35 went into flames.

    Three persons including Administrative Attache of the Embassy received injuries in the incident at 3.15 p.m. near a petrol station, located 500 metres from the 7, Race Course Road official residence of the Prime Minister.

    An indication that the incident in Delhi could be a part of targeted attacks on Israeli staff came when a Foreign Ministry spokesman said in Jerusalem that there have been incidents in which embassy staff were targetted in Tbilisi and New Delhi.

    The incident came a day after the fourth anniversary of the killing of Hezbollah’s deputy leader Imad Mughniyah.

    Delhi Police spokesperson Rajan Bhagat said two Israeli embassy employees were injured in the incident. “We have rushed bomb disposal squad to the spot. We are investigating the cause of fire,” he said.

    An eyewitness Ravir Singh, who is the owner of a nearby petrol pump, said he heard a loud noise following which he rushed to the spot.

    “I was at my petrol pump. I heard a loud noise. I rushed to the spot and found a car in blaze. A fire tender from nearby airforce station was at the spot dousing the flame,” Singh said.

    Police said the four cars were damaged in the incident.

    There were conflicting versions of the incident with initial reports suggesting that the CNG cylinder kept at the back of the embassy’s vehicle burst soon after it was re—filled at a nearby petrol station.

    Fire brigade officials said the car caught fire and some reports also said there was a collision with another car.

    According to eyewitnesses, the car had filled CNG at a petrol station and was on its way to the Embassy when the blast took place.

    The injured Israeli embassy attache was identified as Ms.Tal (42).

    “An Israeli diplomat is injured in a car explosion this afternoon,” Israeli Embassy spokesperson David Goldfarb told PTI.

    He said,”we are in close touch with the local authorities to assess the situation“.

    Asked if there was a connection between the today’s explosion and the Georgia incident, the spokesperson said, “we don’t have any information so far. We don’t know“.

    Medical Superintendent of Ram Manohar Lohia hospital, Dr T S Sidhu, said “three persons with splinter injuries have been brought. They will be discharged soon“.

    They were identified as Manoj Sharma (40), Arun Sharma (40) and Manjeet Singh (75).

    A post blast team of the National Security Guard (NSG) was called in from Manesar to probe the incident.

    Israel says bombs target embassies in India, Georgia

    Bombers targeted staff at Israel's embassies in India and Georgia on Monday, wounding four people, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu accused Iran and its Lebanese ally Hezbollah of involvement.

    The New Delhi bomb wrecked a vehicle with diplomatic plates and Israel's parliamentary television channel said the wife of Israel's Defence attache and her driver were among four people hurt. The Tbilisi bomb was defused safely by Georgian police.

    Israel had put its foreign missions on especially high alert ahead of the February 12 anniversary of the assassination, in 2008, of the military mastermind of Lebanon's Hezbollah guerrillas, Imad Moughniyeh.

    Iranian-backed Hezbollah had vowed to avenge Moughniyeh's death in a Damascus car-bombing, blaming it on the Jewish state.

    Israel is also believed to be locked in a wider covert war with Iran, whose nuclear program has been beset by sabotage, including the unclaimed killings of several scientists.

    "Iran, which stands behind these attacks, is the largest exporter of terror in the world," Netanyahu told lawmakers from his Likud party in Jerusalem.

    He linked the incidents to allegations of similar but foiled attacks in Thailand and Azerbaijan last month for which, he said, Iran and its "proxy" Hezbollah were responsible.

    There was no immediate comment from Tehran or Beirut.

    The New Delhi blast took place some 500 meters from the official residence of Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

    "I heard a bomb blast near the petrol pump. I went to see what happened and the next thing I saw was the car ablaze. There was a lady and a driver inside the car. The people pulled them out of the car," said Ravi Singh, a witness.

    A number of witnesses told Indian television they saw two people on a motorbike sticking a device onto the rear of the car when it stopped at a traffic signal.

    Georgian police prevented a similar incident, defusing a bomb found in a car of an Israeli embassy staff member.

    Thailand said last month it had arrested a Lebanese man who had links with Hezbollah and a confiscated cache of explosives. Israel responded by urging its citizens to exercise caution while visiting Thailand.

    Separately last month, authorities in Azerbaijan arrested two people suspected of plotting to attack Israel's ambassador and a local rabbi.

    In a January 24 speech, Israel's military chief, Lieutenant-General Benny Gantz, accused Hezbollah of trying to carry out proxy attacks while avoiding direct confrontation. Israel and Hezbollah fought an inconclusive and costly war in 2006.

    "During this period of time, when our enemies in the north avoid carrying out attacks, fearing a harsh response, we are witnesses to the ongoing attempts by Hezbollah and other hostile entities to execute vicious terror attacks at locations far away from the state of Israel," Gantz said.

    "I suggest that no one test our resolve."

    It presents a concern for us as this has happened in our territory. If it could have happened to an Israeli diplomat so close to the 7RCR, then perhaps the security arrangement of the whole area and whole of the capital in general should be reviewed.
    As far as the attacks itself are concerned, undoubtedly they are linked. Some TV reports suggest that a device was attached to the car from a motorcycle and the blast followed. Magnet bomb, most probably. Interestingly, the recent killing of the Iranian nuclear scientist was done in almost similar manner.
    Perhaps it wouldn't be unwise to think that Iran is somehow linked with the attack.
