Attack on Israel’s Embassy in Serbia described as terrorism

Belgrade, Jun 29 (Prensa Latina) The attempted attack on Israel’s Embassy in this capital is an act of terrorism, Serbian Interior Minister Ivica Dacic said on Saturday.

According to local television RTS, the president assessed the assault on a member of the gendarmerie and announced the arrest of several people as a precaution near police facilities.

Previously, the Serbian Government had reported that in the attempted attack on Israel’s diplomatic seat in Belgrade, a police officer was injured with a crossbow, and the attacker was killed.

According to Minister Ivica, the special prosecutor’s office is now investigating the case and there are suspicions that people supposedly linked to the Wahhabi movement, an ultra-conservative branch of Islam, are related to the attack.
