PARIS, December 12. /TASS/. An unknown attacker on a motorcycle opened fire at the Israeli embassy in the Greek capital on Friday. Nobody was hurt, AFP reported.

When passing by, the motorcyclist opened fire at the diplomatic representative office from a submachine gun, supposedly of a Kalashnikov type, witnesses said.

Police are investigating the incident.

Diplomats and embassies were repeatedly attacked by rightist activists in Athens in recent years, AFP said.

The German embassy was under fire twice from a grenade launcher in 1999 and from a submachine gun in 2013. The US embassy was attacked in 2007. Nobody was hurt in the incidents.
