In 1994 the western hemisphere suffered its worst terrorist attack up to that time. A massive car bombing destroyed the Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina (AMIA), the Argentine Jewish Mutual Aid Society, killing 85 people and leaving hundreds wounded.
It was alleged at the time that the Argentine president and foreign minister knew that Hezbollah, with the blessing of the Iranian leadership, was behind the attack.
In December 2015 the release of a secretly recorded phone conversation confirmed the long held belief that Foreign Minister Hector Timmerman knew of Tehran’s responsibility for the murders all along.
