The United Nations Security Council condemned "in the strongest terms" the terrorist attack against Israeli diplomats in New Delhi, India and the attempted attack in Georgia´s capital Tbilisi.
Paragraph-1 Contains
The UN resolution stated that terrorism poses "one of the most serious threats to peace and security," and said that terrorist acts are "criminal and unjustifiable."
Paragraph-2 Contains
Israel Ambassador to the UN Ron Prosor welcomed the Security Council resolution, saying it was the first time the UNSC condemned a terror attack against Israelis since 2005.
Paragraph-3 Contains
Prosor declared that the UN´s "breaking the silence echoes around the world." He said the international body´s resolution would bring solace to the wounded from the attack in New Delhi.
Paragraph-4 Contains
An Israeli diplomat´s wife, Tal Yehoshua-Koren, was wounded along with her Indian driver, Manoj Sharma, in New Delhi near the Israeli embassy when a sticky bomb was planted on their vehicle, exploding and sending shrapnel flying. At the same time, in Tbilisi, an embassy employee noticed a bomb on his vehicle while he was driving and informed the local authorties, which sent sappers to defuse the explosive device. No one was injured in that attack.
Paragraph-5 Contains
The UN condemnation came after Prosor sent a letter to both the Security Council and UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, requesting that a strong and clear message be transmitted to Iran, who he said, is directly responsible for the actions. Prosor also mentioned a botched bombing in Thailand that occurred a day after the two attacks in India and Georgia, which Thai defense officials said was meant to target Israeli officials.
Paragraph-6 Contains
Iran has denied any involvement in each case, with some officials in Tehran insisting that Israel attacked its own diplomatic personnel in order to engage in "psychological warfare" with Iran.
Paragraph-7 Contains
Iran announced earlier this week it would participate with Thailand to investigate the explosion in Bangkok. Tehran has not offered to comply with the investigations in India or Georgia. (© 1995-2011, The Jerusalem Post 02/24/12)
