Hezbollah Car Bombs in Georgia and India

A car bomb just exploded outside the Israeli Embassy in New Delhi, India, and wounded the wife of a diplomat.

Another car bomb was defused outside the Israeli Embassy in Tbilisi, Georgia.

These were almost certainly placed there by Hezbollah as they coincide with the fourth anniversary of the assassination of its military commander Imad Mughniyah in Damascus.

Hezbollah military commanders are legitimate targets. Diplomats, their families, and embassy staff aren’t. The Party of God isn’t just a guerrilla army with a missile arsenal. It remains, as ever, a terrorist organization.
