Israeli embassy employee attacked in China, admitted to hospital

Israeli Embassy employee has been attacked in China. The incident followed Israel's comments on China's response to the Hamas attack. Israel had criticized China and raised questions on China's remarks.

An employee of the Israel Embassy has been attacked in China. Later he was admitted to the hospital. At present, China has not given any reaction on the incident. The motive behind the attack was not immediately clear. The incident follows Hamas' incursion into southern Israel last Saturday, drawing criticism from Israel over China's response. The attack took place outside the embassy. The Israeli Foreign Ministry said that the employee is undergoing treatment.

The identity of the Israeli employee has not been disclosed and no individual or group has claimed responsibility for the attack. The Foreign Ministry statement said the employee's condition was stable, but did not provide any further information about the incident. Israeli officials are currently investigating the matters related to the attack. In addition to the incident, Israel's Foreign Ministry expressed "deep disappointment" to Chinese envoy to the Middle East Zhai Jun over China's comments regarding the Hamas infiltration.

Increased security of Israeli Embassy

Israel claimed that China's statements failed to condemn the Hamas attack, where Hamas fighters took dozens of Israeli citizens and foreign nationals hostage. Security measures have been increased at the Israeli Embassy in Beijing. After the attack on Israeli personnel, China has deployed police forces to protect the embassy. The Israeli Embassy employee is currently admitted to the hospital and is undergoing treatment.

China condemned Hamas attack on Israel

America remains an ally of Israel and has now started supplying weapons. US Secretary of State Antony Blinken is on a visit to Israel. He is going to visit more countries of the Middle East this year. Especially Israel's close allies Egypt and Bahrain. Everyone from China to Russia and Ukraine condemned the Israel attack. China had termed the Hamas attack as a 'terrorist attack'. However, Israel was unhappy with this and expressed its disappointment to the Chinese Ambassador.
