In 1994, a Buenos Aires Jewish cultural center was bombed. Eighty-five people were killed and 300 were injured. Argentinian prosecutors charged Lebanese militant group Hezbollah with carrying out the plot and Iranian officials with directing them. Iran’s current minister of Defense, Ahmad Vahedi, was allegedly part of the plot.

Both Hezbollah and the Iranian government denied responsibility in the attack.
