New Delhi , Feb 5 : After the recent bomb blast outside the Israeli embassy in New Delhi, Israel is now looking into the angle whether Israelis are being deliberately targeted in India.
Israelis in India were targeted in 2012 as well when a magnetic bomb was planted on a vehicle carrying Israelis. Last week's blast outside the embassy is second such incident. According to Israeli ambassador Ron Malka, there is a possibility that Israelis are being deliberately targeted in India.
While raising concern about the recent blast, envoy Malka praised India for 'extensive investigation', adding that Israel is waiting for the outcome of the investigation.
"It is a possibility that's what we are exploring now, it is not a coincidence that on the day that we marked 29 years in collaboration it has happened (bomb blast), maybe someone wants to send a message or someone doesn't like it. Or there is a threat to flourishing and expanding collaboration with India. There is a possibility of course," said Ambassador Malka when asked about why Israeli nationals are being targeted in India.
