Bolton: Israel Must Have Conclusive Evidence That Iran Was Responsible for Bulgaria Bus Attack
At least four people were killed in the bombing of a bus filled with Israeli tourists in Bulgaria. Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has charged that all signs point to the fact that Iran instigated this attack, and he has warned that his country will have a strong response. Ambassador John Bolton joined America Live and said that this attack could set the stage for a major showdown between the two nations.
Bolton commented on Netanyahu’s claims that Iran was behind the blast, saying, “I think you have to believe that Israeli
Prime Minister Netanyahu was choosing his words very carefully and that he spoke only after his government had gotten what they believe to be conclusive evidence that Iran was responsible for this attack.”

He warned about possible retaliation, saying, “If there’s an Israeli strike against Iran, even against simply Revolutionary Guards facilities but not the nuclear program, then you could have a direct response by Iran against Israel and we could really be into it.”
He underlined the severity of the situation, saying, “This is a very major development, escalation in the region.”
