Arrest warrants for four tied to 1994 Buenos Aires Jewish center bombing

Those accused of helping the terrorists enter the country are thought to be in Paraguay or Brazil.

An Argentinian federal judge has called on Interpol to arrest four Lebanese men believed to be connected to a truck bomb that killed 85 people and injured more than 300 at the Buenos Aires AMIA Jewish community center on July 18, 1994.

The warrants were issued by Judge Daniel Rafecas, who sent an order last October for the arrest of an Iranian official alleged to be involved in the attack.

“Regarding these individuals, there are well-founded suspicions that they are collaborators or operational agents of the … armed wing of Hezbollah,” Rafecas wrote in a June 13 resolution, according to the Associated Press.

No one has been charged in the case. Argentine courts and others believe that Iran is behind the attack, but the Islamic regime denies involvement.

The four men are not believed to be directly responsible for the bombing but to have assisted in the terrorists’ entry into the country.
