Barak Blames Iran for Bangkok Bombing

Defense Minister Ehud Barak said Tuesday that the attempted bombing in Bangkok proves that Iran and its proxies continue operating in the ways of terror.

“Iran and Hezbollah are relentless terror elements who pose a danger to the stability of the region and the world,” Barak said in a statement, during a visit in Singapore.

Earlier on Tuesday, a man thought to be an Iranian national was seriously wounded in Bangkok when a bomb he was carrying exploded and blew his legs off. Shortly before, there had been an explosion in a house the man was renting in the Ekamai area of central Bangkok

A senior Israeli official said Tuesday that Thailand police believe that the bombings were a botched terror attack, since the actual explosions did not take place near the Israeli embassy.

Five people were wounded as a result of Tuesday’s attack. A taxi driver told Thai television that the Iranian man had thrown a bomb in front of his car before running off, injuring him slightly.
