India vows to investigate Israeli car bombing (VIDEO)

Indian Home Minister Palaniappan Chidambaram said the bomb blast in New Delhi which targeted an Israeli diplomatic car was carried out by a “very well-trained person,” according to the Associated Press.

While acknowledging that the act was a terrorist attack, Chidambaram said, "At the moment, I am not pointing a finger at any particular group or any particular organization. But whoever did it, we condemn it in the strongest terms.”

The attack happened on Monday, when the suspect, riding a motorcycle, attached a bomb to an Israeli car, a style reminiscent of the attack that killed an Iranian nuclear scientist last month.

Another similar attack in Georgia was foiled when the bomb was found and defused, according to The New York Times.

Israel is on high alert after another bombing in Bangkok happened today. Officials are still trying to determine if Israelis were the intended targets of the Iranian man who carried explosives which wounded four people, including himself, said the AP.

Israel has already blamed Iran for the attacks, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stating that Iran and Hezbollah were responsible. Iran’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast responded to the accusations by saying that Israel had launched the attacks itself to “tarnish Iran’s friendly ties with the host countries,” and “to launch psychological warfare against Iran.”

Iran still supplies oil to India, and India struck a defiant tone regarding the new financial sanctions that were imposed by the US and the European Union. However, Israel is India’s second-largest supplier of arms, and India finds itself in a diplomatic high wire act, said Reuters. India’s former foreign secretary, Kanwal Sibal, told Reuters, “Such security situations on our soil could complicate India's relations with Iran.”
