Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Lebanon’s Iranian-backed Hezbollah organization carried out the attack that killed at least five Israeli tourists in Bulgaria.
“Yesterday’s attack was committed by Hezbollah -- the long arm of Iran,” Netanyahu told reporters in a press conference in Jerusalem today. “We will continue to chase after the attackers and extract a heavy price.”
The suicide attack on a bus at the airport in Burgas, a popular Bulgarian vacation spot on the Black Sea, killed five Israelis, the Bulgarian bus driver and the attacker, according to the Bulgarian Foreign Ministry.
