Israel Expects Argentine Government to Bring Those Responsible for Buenos Aires Bombings to Justice

[Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs] The Israeli government Wednesday welcomed the publication of the results of the special investigation into the terrorist attack on the Buenos Aires Jewish Community Building (AMIA) in Argentina on July 18, 1994. The investigation determined unequivocally that the attack was carried out by Hizballah, with the support of the leaders of the Iranian government. Eighty-five persons were murdered and hundreds wounded in the bombing. Israel had claimed for years that Hizballah and Iran, both of which continue to perpetrate terrorism today, were responsible for both the AMIA attack and a deadly assault on the Israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires on March 17, 1992, in which 29 were murdered and some 300 wounded. With the release of the report, Israel expects the Argentine government to take the necessary steps to bring those responsible for these atrocities to justice.
