Israeli Wounded in India Attack Stabilized

The Israeli diplomat’s wife wounded in a car bomb attack in New Delhi is in stable condition following surgery to remove shrapnel.

Tal Yehoshua-Koren, the wife of an Israeli Defense Ministry representative to India, reportedly woke for the first time on Tuesday, a day after the bombing. The bomb reportedly was attached to the car by someone on a motorcycle and detonated remotely while she was riding.

Some reports say that Koren realized what happened and began exiting the car before the explosion. She was taken to the hospital by rickshaw, Ynet reported. She could soon return to Israel, according to reports.

The Associated Press reported that the shrapnel was removed from her spine and that she has partial paralysis in her legs.

Also Tuesday, India’s home minister condemned the attack, saying that “Diplomats of every country are entitled to live and work here in peace and security.” He said the attack was carried out by a “well-trained person.”

Indian and Israeli security authorities are cooperating and sharing information, Israel Radio reported.

Israel has blamed Iran for the attack.
