Iran and Hizbullah have tried to carry out terrorist attacks in over
20 countries around the world over the past two years, Mossad
Director Tamir Pardo and Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) Director
Yoram Cohen said on Sunday.
Pardo and Cohen made the remarks during a meeting with the Israeli
Cabinet, during which they briefed its members on the intelligence
agencies´ actions against Iranian and Hizbullah terrorism around the
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu praised the exposure of those
behind the attacks, saying, “There is great significance in the
ability to prove to the world that Iran and Hizbullah are responsible
for terrorist attacks that cross continents.”
Netanyahu also sought to thank the Mossad and Shin Bet personnel for
the hidden actions they take throughout the world in order to defend
the citizens of the State.
“The wave of Iranian terrorism that is also perpetrated through
Hezbollah has met with, and will yet meet with, determined actions,”
In an interview with Fox News on Sunday, Netanyahu repeated his
assertion that Iran and Hizbullah are behind the terror attack in
Burgas, Bulgaria, last week.
Netanyahu said his assertion that Hizbullah is behind the attack last
week that killed five Israeli tourists is based on “rock solid”
intelligence and on its resemblance to other recent attempted attacks
across the world, including one in Cyprus last week.
“It’s the same modus operandi,” he said. “It’s them and we know it.”
Bulgarian authorities said on Sunday they have reached the same
conclusions as Netanyahu, denying claims of responsibility for the
suicide attack by a small Muslim terrorist group.
The group, which calls itself Qa´adat el-Jihad, claims to be linked
to the international Al-Qaeda terrorist organization.
Bulgarian media reported on Sunday that it is believed the suicide
bomber received assistance from a man who was seen in the resort city
of Varna in the country. (IsraelNationalNews © 2011 07/23/12)
