Israel has officially declared Pakistan-based terror outfit Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) as a terrorist organization ahead of the anniversary of the Mumbai terror attack. The move is seen as a significant step in marking the tragic event that took place on November 26, 2008.
Israel made the decision to designate LeT as a terror organization without any request from India. In a statement, the Israeli embassy described LeT as a “deadly and reprehensible” group responsible for the murder of hundreds of Indian civilians and others.
The embassy further stated, “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 anniversary of the Mumbai terror attack holds great significance, as it was a horrific event that claimed the lives of many innocent people. Israel’s decision to officially designate LeT as a terrorist organization serves as a reminder of the ongoing fight against terrorism and the need for international cooperation to combat such threats.
It is worth noting that this designation was made by Israel independently, without any request from the Indian government. This highlights the global recognition of the threat posed by LeT and the determination to take action against such extremist organizations.
As the world remembers the victims of the Mumbai terror attack, the declaration by Israel serves as a strong message against terrorism and a reaffirmation of the commitment to combat it.
