Hizbullah Denies Involvement in Bourgas Bombing

July 20, 2012  

The Hizbullah terror organization on Thursday denied involvement in this week’s bombing of a tourist bus in Bulgaria that left at least five Israelis dead and dozens more wounded.

“For over a year, Iran, along with its protégé Hizbullah, has been waging an international terror campaign,” Netanyahu said on Thursday. He called Iran “the world’s No. 1 exporter of terror” and Hizbullah its “long arm”.

Mughniyah, once Hizbullah’s top military commander, was assassinated in a car-bomb explosion in Damascus in February 2008. Hizbullah blamed Israel for Mughniyah’s killing and vowed to take revenge.

Some of the perpetrators who planned those bungled attacks have been linked to Iran and to Hizbullah, called the “A-Team of terrorism” by some US officials. 

Several Iranian scientists involved with Iran’s nuclear program have been murdered in the past two years, and computers at Iranian nuclear facilities have been struck by highly sophisticated viruses. 

It is widely believed Hizbullah, which has an international reach and provides a layer of deniability to Iran, is a part of that effort. 

One reason is the likelihood that such a move would spark another highly destructive war between Hizbullah and Israel, which would cost the terror organization dearly in the polls.

But most observers say Hizbullah is merely biding its time. A month after Israeli helicopter gunships killed Hizbullah leader Sheikh Abbas Mussawi in February 1992, the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires, Argentina, was blown up, killing 29 people. 

Several senior members of Iran’s foreign covert operations Quds force, which has long-established ties to Hizbullah, were implicated in that attack.
