Israel Welcomes Argentinian Supreme Court Decision

(Communicated by Foreign Ministry Spokesman)
7 September 1999

Israel welcomes all actions designed to combat international terrorism — and hopes that the international warrant for the arrest of a Hizballah leader, issued by the Government of Argentina on 2 September 1999, will assist the investigation of the March 1992 terrorist attack at the Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires, as well as efforts to apprehend and prosecute those responsible, no matter their country of origin.
