Bulgarian security lapse, seven Israeli tourists killed
Seven Israeli tourists were killed when a bus carrying 47 tourists was bombed near Bourgas airport in Bulgaria and Israelis have termed it as a major ‘security failure’.
The tourists, mostly young people, were heading for the Sunny Beach resort. The Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu said: “All the signs point to Iran. Just in the last few months, we saw Iran attempting to hurt Israelis in Thailand, India, Georgia, Kenya, Cyprus and other countries. Exactly 18 years after the infernal terror attack in the Jewish community centre in Argentina [in Buenos Aires, in which 85 people were killed], the murderous terror of the Iranians continues to hurt innocent people. This is terrorist Iranian aggression revealing itself all over the world. Israel will respond forcefully to the Iranian terror.”
