Israel declares Lashkar-e-Taiba as terror outfit

To mark the anniversary of the Mumbai terror attack later this month, Israel today officially designated Pakistan-based Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) a terrorist organization. ‘’Despite not being requested by the Indian government to do so, the state of Israel has formally completed all necessary procedures and has satisfied all required checks to introduce Lashkar-e-Taiba into the Israeli list of illegal terror organisations," the Israeli embassy said in a statement. Lashkar -e- Taiba is a deadly and reprehensible terror organisation, 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 statement said. The attacks, began on November 26 and lasted until November 29, 2008.
