The wife of the Israeli diplomat who was wounded in the terror attack near the Israeli embassy in New Delhi, underwent two major surgeries on Monday night and her condition was stated to be “critical but stable.”

Earlier, the woman was identified as Tal Yehoshua-Koren. The India-based television channel CNN-IBN reported that Yehoshua-Koren suffered splinter injuries in the attack and was admitted to the local Primus Hospital.

A spokesperson for the hospital told the channel, “Her surgery is over...she continues to remain critical but stable. She will be under observation for some time because she had undergone two major surgeries.”

The report noted that Yehoshua-Koren was going to pick up her two children from school when a car that was parked near the Israeli embassy exploded.

Security forces in Tbilisi, Georgia, thwarted another attack when they defused a bomb near the Israeli embassy.

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu blamed Iran for the attacks, saying that “Iran, the largest exporter of terrorism in the world,” along with its client Hizbullah, were behind the attacks.

Iran, however, denied Netanyahu’s accusations and claimed that Israel itself was behind the attacks and that it carried them out “to tarnish Iran’s friendly ties with the host countries.”
