Fake Bomb Discovered in Israeli Embassy in Uruguay
Police found a fake bomb, complete with cables, at the Israeli Embassy in Uruguay this week, for the third time this year, according to Breitbart News.
An official of the fire department, which deployed bomb-sniffing dogs to the embassy, said at a press conference:
“Due to the element’s external physical attributes, we have identified batteries and electric conductors that make one assume this is an explosive device.”
It was discovered in front of the embassy, located near Montovideo’s World Trade Center complex, at the same time of a Boycott Israel protest outside the building. Approximately 30 people attended the rally with Palestinian Authority flags.
Three other fake bombs have been planted at the embassy, one of them, last November and two of them this year that were placed in a supermarket bag and a sardine can.
No one has been arrested, but one suspect fled to Iran after being ordered to appear for questioning. Iran accused Israel of planting the bomb to create “Iranophobia.”
