    On Iran Envoy to India Iraj Elahi's statement that "Iran played no role in Hamas attack on Israel", Israel's deputy envoy to India Ohad Nakash Kaynar says, "He is representative of a regime that murders his own people and mass. He is not the one to criticize us and he's not a valid source of anything. And if there's something that we've learned recently, and especially this last night, we need to look extensively at what we're seeing and hearing before we rush to conclusions. He is an ambassador of a state that since 1979 has vowed to destroy us, that has armed three terror organizations on our borders... But when we say that their hand is in everything, their hand is in everything, from planning, from the targeting, from the arming, every single portion...They are doing everything around us to make sure that Israelis and Jews die. And it's a clear, clear hand of Iran. It's not a mistaken hand..."
