Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Wednesday that Iran is responsible for the terror attack against Israelis in Bulgaria, which reportedly killed seven people.

Netanyahu said that all the evidence in Israel's possession points to Iran as the party responsible for the attack, in which a bus with Israeli tourists blew up at the Burgas airport earlier Wednesday.

"In the past months we saw Iranian attempts to attack Israelis in Thailand, India, Kenya, and Cyprus," Netanyahu said. "Exactly 18 years after the attack on a Jewish community center in Argentina, the Iranian terror continues to hurt innocent people."

"This is an Iranian terror offensive that is spreading throughout the world," he said, warning that Israel will issue a "strong response against Iranian terror."

Earlier Wednesday, seven people were reported killed and 20 wounded in a terror attack against Israeli tourists in an airport in Burgas, Bulgaria.

At around 5 P.M. on Wednesday, an explosive device was set off in a bus that was carrying some 40 Israeli tourists in a terminal in the Burgas airport.

According to initial reports, the Israelis on the bus were passengers on flight 392 of the Bulgarian airline Air-Vin, which landed in the Burgas airport at 4:45 P.M.

The incident took place on the 18th anniversary of the attack on the Jewish community center in Buenos Aires.
