Jerusalem - Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu blamed Iran for a deadly attack on Israeli tourists in Bulgaria on Wednesday, warning his country would "respond forcefully" to strikes by Tehran.

"All the signs lead to Iran," the Israeli leader said in a statement on the blast which Bulgarian officials said killed three people.

"In the past few months we have seen attempts by Iran to harm Israelis in Thailand, India, Georgia, Kenya, Cyprus and other places," he said, describing it as another stage in "an Iranian terror attack which is spread across the entire world".

"It is exactly 18 years since the bomb attack on the Jewish community centre in Argentina and murderous Iranian terror continues to harm innocent people," Netanyahu said of a 1994 attack in Buenos Aires which left 85 people dead and 300 injured, and which was blamed on Iran.

"Israel will respond forcefully to Iranian terror," he vowed.
