The Argentine government will declassify all the intelligence documents about the deadly 1992 bombing on the Israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires.

The measure was announced Thursday on the government’s website for records of public proceedings, the Official Gazette. It followed a request made the previous day by the National Supreme Court of Justice in a document signed by all four justices.

The high court is leading the investigation because the attack occurred on a diplomatic mission. Its investigation has found that the March 17, 1992 attack, which killed 29 and wounded hundreds, was perpetrated by Hezbollah.

Interest in the investigation has picked up since last month, when Argentina’s president, Christina Fernandez de Kirchner, rebuked Israel for not working to bring the perpetrators of the bombing to justice. Israel responded that it was Argentina’s responsibility.

In 1999, the court ordered the arrest of top Hezbollah operations officer Imad Mughniyah, who was assassinated in 2008, in connection with the embassy attack.

Last month, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel noted the two bombings in Buenos Aires - the other was the AMIA Jewish center attack in 1994 - during his address to a joint meeting of the US Congress. Iran, he said, “blew up the Jewish community center and the Israeli Embassy in Buenos Aires.”
