Israel on Thursday demanded that the terrorists who attacked one of its diplomats here two years ago must be made "accountable" while reminding India of the assurance given to it in this regard.

"Immediately after the attack in Delhi, the external affairs minister of India assured the Israeli leadership that the culprits will be brought to justice at the earliest, that the law of land will take its course and that India will continue with the investigation," a statement by the Israeli Embassy said in New Delhi.

"One Indian citizen was arrested and four arrest warrants were issued against the Iranian culprits who have escaped. It is understood that the Iranian authorities did not provide answers to the government of India. The terrorists who committed this heinous attack in Delhi and the government of Iran that sent them must be made accountable," it said.

It also said that the Israeli Government was grateful for the security India is providing for Israeli diplomats in order to prevent events like this from happening again.

Two years ago, Tal Yehoshua Koren, an Israeli diplomat, a friend and a colleague, was on her way to pick up her two children from school. "In the heart of New Delhi, she was targeted by agents of the Government of Iran who attempted to assassinate her," it said adding Tal was still recovering from the attack. Her driver and two innocent bystanders, all Indian citizens, were also injured.

Israel has alleged that Iran was behind the terror attack, a charge denied by the Iranian government.
