Israeli injured in New Delhi attack stable following surgery


JERUSALEM — The Israeli woman wounded in the car bomb attack in New Delhi is in stable condition after 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 a bomb attached to the car she was riding in detonated.

The bomb reportedly was stuck to the car by someone on a motorcycle and then detonated remotely.

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 on 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.
