26 years ago, a terrorist attack shocked Argentina. The attack on AMIA – a seat of the Jewish community – left 85 dead and 300 wounded, those who to date have not found justice. The act was allegedly carried out by the terrorist organization Hezbollah, with the help of Syria and Iran, who deny the facts.
The AMIA attack occurred two years after another terrorist attack, which targeted the Israeli Embassy in Argentina, where 22 people died, both attacks could have been carried out by the same subjects, members of the Islamic jihad of Hezbollah, according to research.
It was 9:53 on July 18, 1994, when a bomb exploded in the Once neighborhood of Buenos Aires, the explosion destroyed the AMIA building, damaging nearby properties. The rescuers began the searches, people under the rubble, and the solidarity of the Argentines who, upon learning of the misfortune, came to the area to help with what they could, are the journalistic chronicles that the media remember every year.
The images are the hardest memory that remains of one of the worst terrorist attacks in Argentina, even more so because the relatives of the fatalities do not see the case move, and despite the fact that 26 years have passed and several governments, those responsible are in full freedom.
ALBERTO NISMAN CASE
Alberto Nisman was an Argentine prosecutor, who died mysteriously in 2015. Nisman had been investigating the AMIA case for more than ten years. A week before his death, the prosecutor filed a complaint against President Cristina Kirchner, because her government signed an agreement with Iran, for the alliance in the investigation of the attack, something that Nisman denounced as a secret pact to guarantee impunity of the Iranians accused by the Argentine justice, in exchange for forging commercial relations.
