Three decades after the shocking 1994 bombing of a Jewish community center in Buenos Aires, Argentina’s highest criminal court has found Iran responsible, according to a ruling obtained by The Associated Press.

The act of terror, which the court called a “crime against humanity” rocked the entire Latin American region for several years, killed 85 and injured 300 others.

The decision came last week after Argentina’s Court of Cassation made a judicial determination that Iran planned the attack as part of a “political and strategic design,” and its terrorist proxy group, Hezbollah, executed those plans on site against the Argentine Jewish Mutual Aid Association community center in Buenos Aires.
