Mumbai attack: Israel bans Lashkar-e-Taiba


Israel has banned the terrorist outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba while saying that the organisation is responsible for the “murder of Indians”. The ban comes around the 15th year of the commemoration of the Mumbai terror attacks on November 26, 2008. Israel’s ban symbolises the occasion as it called the outfit a ‘deadly’ and ‘reprehensible’ terror organisation.

The Indian government did not seek this action to be done. The Israel Embassy in India sent a press release stating that the state of Israel had officially finished all relevant processes and satisfied all checks and regulations as a result of adding Lashkar-e-Taiba to the Israeli list of unlawful terror organisations.

The statement highlights that Israel lists only those terror organisations that are actively operating against it, be it from within or around its borders. Similarly, it lists those that affect India, those globally recognised by the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) or the US State Department. 

“Israel ministers of Defence and Foreign Affairs have jointly worked in last few months towards an expedited and extraordinary listing of the Lashkar -e- Taiba organization on this date, to highlight the importance of a Unified Global Front in combating terrorism,” ANI quoted the statement as saying.

“Lashkar-e-Taiba is a deadly and reprehensible terror organization, responsible for the murder of hundreds of Indian civilians as well as others. Its heinous actions on November 26, 2008 still reverberate in force, through all peace-seeking nations and societies,” the statement added.

“The state of Israel offers its sincere condolences to all victims of terrorism and to the survivors and bereaved families of the Mumbai attacks, including those in Israel. We stand with you united in the hope for a better peaceful future,” It also says.
