Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke to Prime Minister Narendra Modi about the blast on January 29 outside the Israeli embassy in New Delhi and thanked him for the measures taken to protect the representatives of his country.

On January 29, there was a minor IED explosion outside the Israeli Embassy on Aurangzeb Road in Lutyens area of Delhi. However, no casualties were reported in the blast. Some cars were damaged in the blast and the police said that preliminary investigation showed that all this was done to create disturbance.
There was a mild IED blast on Friday evening near the Israeli Embassy. This made the security agencies restless. At the place of incidence, Delhi Police received an envelope which had a letter addressing the Israel's ambassador. It has been said in the letter that it was a trailer. The letter also mentions Iran's General Qasim Sulemani, who was killed in a drone attack near Baghdad Airport in Iraq on 3 January 2020. In this context, the investigating agencies are also looking for Iran connection in this blast.
Security agencies have not yet found any concrete clue in the case of the blast on Friday evening near the Israeli embassy. Actually, most of the CCTVs installed near the blast site were not in use at the time of the incident. Official police sources said that the investigation team of the Special Cell of Delhi Police visited the blast site near the Israeli Embassy for the purpose of gathering further evidence.
Israel's Ambassador to India Ron Malka said that he had enough reason to believe that it was a terrorist attack but he is not surprised about the attack as vigilance had been greatly increased for the past few weeks following intelligence. He said in an interview to 'PTI-Bhasha', "All aspects are being investigated keeping in mind the possibility of our diplomats having any connection with the attack here in 2012 and other attacks happening around the world are also included."
