Analysis: Connecting the Dots From Bulgaria To Syria
The attack on Israelis in Bulgaria has hallmarks of the Iran-sponsored Hezbollah, but some differences as well.
Eighteen years after blowing up the AMIA Jewish Community Center in Buenos Aires - an attack that killed 85 people - Hezbollah appears to have struck again, this time in Bulgaria.
While it is difficult to disconnect the two attacks due to the amazing timing, there are some differences, most importantly the chosen target.
In 1994 in Argentina, a van with hundreds of kilograms of explosives rammed into the AMIA center, killing dozens and wounding hundreds. Wednesday’s attack appears to have been caused by a bomb planted on the bus.
While the attack is severe, it is not on the scale of what happened in 1994.
