Survivors and family members of those killed in the 1992 bombing of the Israeli Embassy in Argentina gathered on Tuesday in a memorial square where the building once stood, Israel Hayom reports.

On March 17, 1992, a truck bomb ripped through the Israeli embassy, killing 29 people and wounding hundreds.

Twenty-three years later the crime remains unresolved. […]

Islamic Jihad in Lebanon, believed to be linked to Iran and the Lebanese terrorist group Hezbollah, has claimed responsibility for the 1992 bombing.

In 1994, two years after the embassy bombing, a truck bomb exploded at a Jewish community center in Buenos Aires, killing 85 people and wounding hundreds. Both attacks remain unresolved and have sparked outrage among Argentines who are denouncing the slow pace of justice.
