Iran's UN envoy says it was Israel who plotted and staged the Bulgarian bus attack, buffing off allegations his country was behind the tragedy.
The suicide bomb attack on a bus in the Bulgarian city of
Burgas on July 18 killed five Israeli tourists and a Bulgarian bus driver and
injured over 30 more.
Israel was quick to point the finger at Iran, accusing
Tehran and its “Hezbollah proxy” of staging the bombing.
"It's amazing that just a few minutes after the
terrorist attack, Israeli officials announced that Iran was behind it,"
Iran's UN Ambassador Mohammad Khazaee told in a UN
Security Council debate on the Middle East on Wednesday. "We have never and
will not engage in such a despicable attempt on innocent people."
"Such a terrorist operation could only be planned and
carried out by the same regime whose short history is full of state terrorism
operations and assassinations, aimed at implicating others for narrow political
gains," added Khazaee.
"I could provide … many examples showing that this
regime killed its own citizens and innocent Jewish people during the last
couple of decades.”
Israel's deputy UN ambassador Haim Waxman called the
accusation by Iranian Ambassador "Appalling, but not surprising from the
same government that says the 9/11 attack was a conspiracy theory and denies
Iran has repeatedly blamed Mossad-trained terrorists for
assassinations of the country’s top nuclear scientists and attacks on its
nuclear research sites.
