Greek anarchist group says shooting at Israeli embassy


A radical left group in Greece claimed responsibility for the December attack on the Israeli embassy in Athens.

An organization called the Group of Popular Rebels said it carried out the attack, Greek police said on Wednesday, according to the New York Times, citing an unnamed police official. Armed men opened fire with Kalashnikov rifles on the embassy, ​​damaging the building but not injuring anyone.

The claim came in a 19-page statement police found on a portable digital storage device left in a trash can in southern Athens, according to the newspaper.

The two rifles used in the embassy shooting were used in a similar attack in December 2013 on the home of the German ambassador in the Greek capital.

Greek anarchist groups have attacked several foreign embassies in Athens in recent years.
