India’s central agencies have found that the Iranian Quds force was behind the blast outside the Israel Embassy in New Delhi as part of “the asymmetric warfare campaign being carried out by Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps against Israel”, reported Hindustan Times.

“That the bomb was not of high intensity, with no human targets in mind was perhaps because the Iranians did not want to run afoul of a friendly nation like India. But the message was clear and the threat is real,” said a counterterror expert, quoted by the newspaper anonymously. 

A low-intensity device that exploded outside the Israel embassy on 29 January has been found to be remote-controlled, triggered off by a bomber using line of sight. 

While the results of the nature of the explosive are still awaited from forensic labs, the agencies feel the device was either an ammonium nitrate-fuel oil explosive with an electric detonator or a more sophisticated PETN (pentaerythritol tetranitrate) device, the report added. 

Investigative agencies had recovered from the spot a letter addressed to Israel’s ambassador to India Ron Malka, calling him a terrorist and devil from a terrorist nation. The case is now being investigated by Indian agencies, with the involvement of experts from Israeli spy agency Mossad. The newspaper also reached out to the Iranian embassy for a comment but there was no response.
