It’s been 26 years since Iran attacked a Jewish center in Argentina, yet the victims’ families still have not seen justice. Will Argentina’s President Alberto Fernandez work to bring an end to the case?
Twenty-six years ago, the AMIA (Asociación Mutual Israelita Argentina) Jewish center building in Buenos Aires was bombed, killing 85 people and injuring hundreds.
It was Argentina’s deadliest bombing ever, and Iran was behind the attack. To this day, none of the perpetrators have been brought to justice.
In the days before the 26th anniversary, Argentina’s President Alberto Fernandez has expressed his desire to end the decades-long legal case that followed the attack.
Fernandez’s comments are significant given that his vice president, Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner, has been on trial for years over allegations that she concealed Iran’s role in the bombing.
