The Israeli regime has carried out the recent attacks against the staff of its embassies in India and Georgia in an attempt to spearhead a psychological war against Iran, a senior Iranian lawmaker says.
Over the past years, Israelis have vigorously sought to antagonize the global community and spark a wave of intimidation against Iran, and following the failure of such schemes, they have resorted to a blame game against the Islamic Republic, even at the expense of harming themselves, said Javad Jahangirzadeh, a member of Iran's Majlis Committee on National Security and Foreign Policy, in a Monday interview.
On Monday in New Delhi, an Israeli diplomat was injured when an embassy car exploded. The envoy made it to the Israeli embassy, from where she was transferred to a nearby hospital. The Israeli ambassador to India was not hurt in the New Delhi attack.
In the second attack, a Georgian national working for the Israeli embassy in Tbilisi discovered a bomb underneath his car while driving to the embassy. The bomb was defused before it exploded.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has claimed that Iran was behind the attacks.
Iran has categorically rejected the Israeli allegations, stating that the accusations are a part of Tel Aviv’s psychological warfare against Iran.
Jahangirzadeh noted that nations of the world oppose the policies of Israel and consider Tel Aviv as an apartheid and racist regime. Such global resentment, he added, is rooted in the myriad acts of terror and treason by Tel Aviv.
