Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak said on Thursday he believes that Hezbollah or Hamas militants could be behind the terrorist attack on Israeli tourists in Bulgaria.
A bomb exploded in a bus with 40 Israeli tourists at a parking lot of the airport in Burgas, a city on the Bulgarian Black Sea coast. The Bulgarian Interior Ministry said six people were killed and 32 wounded, with four of them in critical condition.
“This is an obvious terrorist attack, which was possibly carried out by Hezbollah, Hamas, Islamic Jihad or any other terrorist group from Iran or radical Islamic forces. We [Israel] are constantly fighting them,” Barak said.
The minister added that all responsible for this terrorist act would be tracked down and eventually punished.
