A letter mentioning Iranian General Qasem Soleimani and nuclear scientist Mohsen Fakhrizadeh was found at the site of the recent bombing near the Israeli embassy in New Delhi, the India Today reported on January 30.

The small explosion took place a day earlier a few meters away from the Israeli embassy. No casualties were reported. However, three cars were damaged.

According to India Today, the letter is one and a half-page long and has been written in a haphazard manner. The letter refers to Soleimani and Fakhrizadeh as “martyrs” and says the attack was only a “trailer.”

Soleimani was killed in a US strike on the Iraqi capital, Baghdad, on January 3 of 2020. Fakhrizadeh was assassinated, reportedly by the Israeli intelligence, on November 27 of the same year.

Indian media said that a mysterious group calling itself “Jaish-Ul-Hind” [the Army of India] had claimed responsibility for the explosion.

“By the grace and help of Almighty Allah, soldiers of Jaish-Ul-Hind were able to infiltrate a high security area in Delhi and carry out an IED attack,” the group said in a statement shared on Telegram. “This, Allah willing, is beginning of a series of attacks which would target major Indian cities and pay back in kind to the atrocities committed by the Indian state. Wait and we are waiting too.”

India Today said that investigators had refused to rely on this particular claim till they gather any evidence of “Jaish-Ul-Hind” being responsible for the blast.

Indian authorities are currently investigating the blast. The Delhi Police Special Cell has questioned several individuals, including several Iranian nationals.

There is still no evidence linking Iran to the blast near the Israeli embassy in New Delhi. However, this does not rule out the possibility that the blast was a message from Tehran to Tel Aviv.
