Stepping up its tirade against Iran, Israel on Tuesday said the plot for terror strikes against the country and its citizens was hatched in Tehran, including the car bomb blast in New Delhi in which one its diplomats was seriously injured.

Iran is behind the recent terror strikes in Bangkok as well as in the failed attempt in Tbilisi, the capital of former Soviet republic of Georgia, Israeli Ambassador Alon Usphiz said.

"This is something that was planned in Tehran. Creator of it is terror-sponsoring nation Iran," Usphiz told a media channel when asked about the allegations of terror attacks levelled by Isreal against Iran.

Noting that Israel has the "highest level of confidence" in Indian security establishment, he said the menace of terrorism can be tackled by "all of us working together."

"We have probably the highest level of confidence and trust in cooperation with the relevant Indian authorities. We are very grateful for the help and measures that relevant agencies are taking to protect us," he said.

"We respect your decision-making (process). India knows exactly what threats Israel is dealing with and we discuss it in a spirit of friendship," he added.

An Israeli Embassy car had exploded in New Delhi yesterday in a suspected terror attack leading to injuries of four people, including a women diplomat.
