Failed Iranian attack - Bangkok

A suspected Iranian intelligence agent has inadvertently blown himself up in Bangkok with a poor grenade throw - wounding civilians in the process. One other individual was arrested and a third is apparently on the run. The Iranians are desperate to put calculated pressure onto Israel. Thai authorities busted an Iranian linked cell in Bangkok a couple of weeks back so this may be a related cell. The problem for the Iranians is that these attacks serve little strategic purpose. They have inflicted little harm on Israel and have simultaneously drawn the anger of states across the world. Israel will now be able to count on the anger and sympathy of Thailand, India and Georgia. Interestingly, the fact that these attacks/attempted attacks were staged at three different global locations and in relative time proximity to each other, would suggest that there was at least some control from Tehran..
