Today, we commemorate 21 years since the AMIA bombing in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The attack, committed by the terror organization Hezbollah, was the largest in Argentina’s history and claimed the lives of 85 people. This incident was not the only time Hezbollah extended its destructive force to implement its terrorist ideology. Below are some of the deadliest terror attacks the terror organization perpetrated across the world.
March 17, 1992: Bombing of the Israeli Embassy in Argentina, Buenos Aires. At 2:42 pm, a car packed with explosives drove to the front of the Israeli Embassy. The embassy, a church and another building were all destroyed by the explosion. 29 people were killed, among them 25 Argentineans and 4 Israelis. 242 people were injured.
July 18, 1994: Bombing of the AMIA (Argentine Israelite Mutual Association) in Buenos Aires, Argentina. At 9:53 am, a van loaded with 275 kgs of explosives smashed into the Jewish Community Center building. The explosion destroyed the building entirely, killing 85 people and injuring 300.
- July 18, 2012: Burgas Bus Bombing, Burgas International Airport, Bulgaria. 151 Israeli tourists had just landed in the country and boarded the buses that were to take them to their hotels. Suddenly, one of the buses exploded when a suicide bomber detonated his bomb. 6 people were killed – 5 Israelis and 1 Bulgarian, and 36 were injured.
These most recent exhibits of brutal violence serve as undeniable proof: Hezbollah has grown and replenished over the years, executing terror against civilians worldwide. Their indiscriminate violence could strike anyone, anywhere, anytime. May the victims’ memory be a blessing.
