Evidence that Iran was involved in bomb plots against Israeli embassies earlier in the year has emerged from a multinational probe, The Guardian reported Monday.

In February, Israel envoys were the targets of planned terror attacks in India, Thailand and Georgia.

According to the report, local Indian agencies informed ministers that a bomb attack in New Dehli, which injured the wife of the Israeli embassy's chief security officer, was orchestrated by a an Iranian "security entity."   

The Guardian stated that European intelligence officials had told the newspaper that "they now found in difficult to judge Tehran's 'risk calculus.'"

According to the report, a combination of police evidence, witness statements and court documents seen by The Guardian indicates that the three attacks were, "conducted by a well coordinated network of about a dozen Iranians and prepared over at least 10 months."
