Report: Israel Provided Argentina with Intelligence Proving that Iran Orchestrated the 1994 AMIA Terrorist Bombing in Buenos Aires

(Times of Israel) Israel's Mossad provided the intelligence information that enabled Argentine prosecutor Alberto Nisman to prove that Iran orchestrated the 1994 AMIA terrorist bombing in Buenos Aires, Israel's Channel 12 reported Thursday. Ex-Mossad agent Uzi Shaya said he gave Nisman incriminating information on former Argentine president Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner's efforts to cover up Iran's role in the blast, in a sequence of events that ultimately led to Nisman's murder. Nisman identified the suicide bomber who blew up the AMIA Jewish center as Hizbullah operative Ibrahim Berro, and traced the commissioning of the blast to a 1993 meeting of the Iranian leadership's "Committee for Special Operations." Nisman's allegations led to issuing international arrest warrants against some of the Iranians for the worst terror attack in Argentina's history. The Israeli report said the Mossad identified the perpetrators and the orchestrators of the blast, and made the information available to Nisman. Shaya said he gave Nisman documents incriminating Kirchner - showing transfers of millions of euros from a major Iranian bank to accounts held by her family members in Cyprus, the Seychelles and the Cayman Islands. This occurred 10 days before Nisman was assassinated - the day before he was to testify to an Argentine congressional panel on then-President Kirchner's role in covering up Iran's responsibility for the attack. Kirchner is today Argentina's vice president.
