Israel welcomes conviction of two Iranian terrorists in Thailand
(Communicated by the Foreign Ministry Spokesman)
Israel welcomes the court verdict in Thailand in which two Iranian terrorists, Saeid Moradi and Mohammad Kharzei, were convicted and sentenced to life imprisonment and 15 years in prison respectively, following their attempt to attack Israelis in Bangkok in February 2012.
This bomb plot was part of an ongoing Iranian terror campaign that targets Israeli and Western objectives. This is evidenced, among other things, by the use of identical explosives in the near simultaneous attacks which were carried out by Iranian terrorists in Bangkok, New Delhi and Tbilisi. In the latter two cases, it should be remembered that the perpetrators managed to affix magnetic explosives to Israeli diplomatic vehicles.
Israel calls on the international community to continue to fight terrorism with determination, in accordance with the legal tools at its disposal, and to bring to justice those involved in such activities.
