Israeli Ambassador to the UN Ron Prosor on Thursday called upon the international community to condemn the recent terrorist attacks against Israeli diplomats around the world.

In a letter to UN Secretary General UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and the UN Security Council (UNSC), Prosor requested that a strong and clear message be transmitted to Iran, who he said, is directly responsible for the actions. Prosor was referring to bomb attacks on diplomatic targets in Georgia and India earlier in the week, as well as explosions in Thailand that Thai Defense officials said were aimed at Israeli targets.

In the letter, Prosor also sharply attacked the UNSC'S conduct. "You should have condemned the terrorist attacks on Israeli diplomats ad they occurred," wrote Prosor. "We expect a sharp, clear condemnation, today, without any delay. The Security Council must take practical steps against Iran, Hezbollah and terrorist infrastructures that collaborate with them across the world."
