Israel is not alone: Media outlets in India are quoting an official New Delhi Police report stating that Iran's Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) is the organization behind the New Delhi terror attack in February 2012, in which an Israeli citizen was wounded.
The investigative report determined that five IRGC members planned the attack in India, as well as the attacks in Thailand and Georgia, in cooperation with an Indian journalist named Syed Mohammad Ahmed Kazmi. According to the police report, the terror attack was planned in the wake of the January 2011 assassination of an Iranian nuclear scientist. During the investigation, authorities in India discovered that Kazmi maintained contacts with the IRGC for more than a decade.
According to the police report, the New Delhi Police approached law enforcement authorities in Iran to obtain information about the suspects. The squad was headed by Houshang Afshar Irani, who was registered as a banker. According to the New Delhi Police, another squad member, Masoud Sedaghat Zadeh, was responsible for the professional aspects of the three attacks.
Additional suspects are Mohammad Reza Abolghasemi, a clerk in Iran's water authority, and Ali Akbar Norouzishayan, formerly an accountant. In addition, an Iranian named Leila Rohani is suspected of assisting the terrorists. According to the report, Rohani helped set up a hideout for the terrorists and escape to Thailand after the New Delhi attack.
In response to this report, US Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who is currently visiting Israel, said yesterday (Sunday) "Iran is the largest sponsor of terrorism in the world, and it should be stopped from fulfilling its intentions." In a speech given in Jerusalem, Romney added, "The US will always stand by Israel's side. We will never look away from our commitment to Israel."
