Israel suffers from having too many enemies around the world, and one of these may have been behind recent attacks on Israeli embassies, Iranian Defense Minister Brigadier General Ahmad Vahidi said Tuesday, Iran's official news agency IRNA reported.

Vahidi was referring to coordinated attacks against embassy personnel in Georgia and India a day earlier.Speaking to a crowd of reporters, Vahidi said "the conditions of the Zionist entity can be observed in all regions of the world." He added that Israel "lacks any place in the world, but is trying to fabricate its hollow position to reduce its collapse."

In response to questions regarding accusations that Iran was involved in the attacks in Georgia and India, Vahidi denied the allegations, saying that Israel was using it as a pretext to launch an attack on Iran.
