New Delhi: Israel’s Ambassador to India, Daniel Carmon, on Saturday expressed his disappointment and surprise over the release of alleged Mumbai attack mastermind Zaki-ur Rehman Lakhvi and described it as a setback for international efforts in the war against terror in which India and Israel are close partners.
“Israel is surprised and disappointed by the release of Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, the mastermind of the 26/11/08 Mumbai attacks in which as part of the horrific attack also Israeli nationals and a Jewish Center – the Nariman House – were targeted,” said an official release from the Israeli Embassy.
“This release is a setback for the international efforts in the war against terror in which India and Israel are close partners,” it added. Ambassador Carmon’s response comes after the Lahore High Court had earlier on Thursday struck down the detention order of Lakhvi and ordered his release.
