Four persons were injured in New Delhi as Israeli missions were targeted by assailants in the Indian capital and the Georgian capital of Tbilisi Monday.
A car blew up in a high security area in Delhi, a short distance from the Israeli embassy, injuring four persons while police in the Georgian capital defused an explosive device found in the car of an Israeli embassy employee.
Indian TV channels reported that one of the injured was in a critical condition.
David Goldfarb, an Israeli embassy spokesman in New Delhi, said that one of the injured occupants of the car was an Israeli diplomat. However, he declined give details. Indian media reported that the injured diplomat was a woman.
Police cordoned off the area and investigation was going on.
We are examining the materials at the site and we are yet to get the experts' report so we still cannot say how the blast occurred, New Delhi police spokesman Rajan Bhagat was quoted as saying by news agencies.
Authorities in Georgia said the driver of a car at the Israeli embassy in Tbilisi noticed a package attached to the car's undercarriage and called police. Police found a grenade in the package and it was defused.
No group has claimed responsibility for incidents. However, suspicion fell on Iran and Hezbollah which harbor grievances against Israel.
