Israel Designates Lashkar-e-Taiba as Terrorist Group News

Israel Designates Lashkar-e-Taiba as Terrorist Group News: In a significant step to mark the 15th anniversary of the 26/11 Mumbai terror attacks, Israel on Monday (November 21) officially declared Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) a terrorist organization. The Embassy of Israel in India announced this decision through a post on X (Formerly called as Twitter), emphasizing the symbolic nature of the move.

The embassy's statement clarified that the Israeli government, despite not being urged by the Government of India, completed all necessary procedures and checks to include Lashkar-e-Taiba in its list of illegal terror organizations. The move is seen as a demonstration of unity in the global fight against terrorism.

The Post read, "To symbolize the marking of the 15th year of commemoration of the Mumbai terror attacks, the state of Israel has listed Lashkar-e- Taiba as a Terror Organization. Despite not being requested by the Government of India to do so, the state of Israel has formally completed all necessary procedures and has satisfied all required checks and regulations to the result of introducing Lashkar -e- Taiba into the Israeli list of illegal terror organizations."

"While Israel typically lists organizations actively operating against it or those globally recognized by the UNSC or the US State Department, the Israeli ministries of Defense and Foreign Affairs collaborated to expedite the listing of Lashkar-e-Taiba. This decision underscores the importance of a unified global front in combating terrorism," the statement explained.

Lashkar-e-Taiba, responsible for the tragic events of November 26, 2008, in Mumbai, is described as a deadly and reprehensible terror organization that has claimed the lives of hundreds of Indian civilians and others. The embassy's message expressed solidarity with the victims of terrorism, including those affected by the Mumbai attacks.

Amidst ongoing tensions in the region, with Israel engaged in a ground offensive in the Gaza Strip, the embassy reaffirmed its commitment to combating terrorism globally. The statement concluded with Israel offering sincere condolences to all victims of terrorism and expressing solidarity with 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," the Embassy's message conveyed.
