Iran has rejected the Israeli allegations that it was involved in Monday’s attacks on Israeli embassy staff in Georgia and India.

Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast said on Monday night that the accusations are baseless and noted that they are a part of Tel Aviv’s psychological warfare campaign against Iran.

"We categorically reject the accusations made by the Zionist regime. They are part of a propaganda war," Mehmanparast said.

He stated that the Islamic Republic condemns every terrorist act because Iran is the biggest victim of terrorism, adding that Israel and its allies are the main source of terrorism in the world.

“The Zionist regime has a serious record of criminal actions against humanity, and it is the first suspect of any terrorist operation in the world,” he said.

In New Delhi, an Israeli diplomat was injured when an embassy car exploded on Monday. The woman made it to the Israeli embassy, from where she was transferred to a nearby hospital. The Israeli ambassador to India was not hurt in the New Delhi attack.

In the second attack, a Georgian national working for the Israeli embassy in Tbilisi discovered a bomb underneath his car during his drive to the embassy. The bomb was defused before it exploded.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Iran was behind the attacks.
