Argentina to declassify all intel on Israeli Embassy bombing

Government decision on deadly 1992 attack comes in response to request by Argentine Supreme Court

The Argentinian government will declassify all intelligence documents about the March 17, 1992, attack on the Israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires that killed 29 people and wounded hundreds.

The move is a response to a request made Wednesday by the National Supreme Court of Justice in a document signed by all four justices.

The court is in charge of the investigation because the attack occurred on a diplomatic mission. The ongoing Supreme Court investigation has found that the attack was perpetrated by Hezbollah. In 1999, the court ordered the arrest of top Hezbollah operations office Imad Mughniyah, who was assassinated in 2008, in connection with the embassy attack.

Interest in the investigation has picked up since last month when Argentina’s President Christina Fernandez de Kirchner rebuked Israel for not working to bring the perpetrators of the 1992 bombing of its embassy in Buenos Aires to justice. Israel responded that it is Argentina’s responsibility to bring the bombers to justice.
