President Klaus Iohannis on Wednesday said he had talked on the phone to a Romanian national injured in a recent attack in Tel Aviv and that the man is relatively well.
“I’ve just talked to him. I wanted to know how he feels. He is weakened. He underwent surgery and he feels relatively well,” said Iohannis, who is currently on a state visit to Israel and Palestine.
The President mentioned that the Romanian national injured in the attack on Tuesday evening in Tel Aviv was in Israel for scientific research projects.
“He told me he was here on a research project, and I invited him to come and see me after he returns to Romania,” said Iohannis after touring the Wailing Wall.
Iohannis started a state visit to Jerusalem and Palestine on Sunday.
Romania’s Foreign Ministry on Wednesday informed that among the wounded in the attack on Tuesday evening in Tel Aviv was a Romanian national that was at the time hospitalised in the capital city of Israel in a stable state of health.
Romania’s Embassy in Tel Aviv keeps in permanent touch with the hospital to provide consular assistance if need be.
One was killed and nine wounded in a multiple knife attack in the southern side on Tel Aviv, in Jaffa, the AFP French news agency quotes the Tel Aviv Police as saying, adding that in the end the attacker, a man, was killed.
