Israel points finger at Iran in Bangkok explosion



JERUSALEM (AP) — Israel’s defense minister has accused Iran of being behind a bombing in Thailand.

Ehud Barak said Tuesday’s explosion in Bangkok “proves once again that Iran and its proxies continue to perpetrate terror.”

He said that Iran and its Lebanese ally Hezbollah are “unrelenting terror elements endangering the stability of the region and endangering the stability of the world.”

Barak spoke during an official visit in Singapore. A statement issued by the Israeli Defense Ministry noted that Barak was in Bangkok on Sunday.
