According to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Hezbollah attempted to target Israeli embassies in India and Georgia today. The bomb in Tbilisi, Georgia was defused before it was able to cause harm but in New Delhi, Israel’s defense attaché’s wife was wounded following the placement of explosives under the car by motorcyclists. Though the attack was poorly executed, it nevertheless is sign that Hezbollah is waging an international war on Israel. Despite failures to execute attacks recently in Thailand and Azerbaijan, where local authorities foiled the terror plots, Hezbollah’s ability to secure weapons abroad suggests its worldwide influence is growing.
