Far-left group claims responsibility for December attack on Israeli Embassy in Athens

A far-left Greek group has claimed responsibility for a shooting attack on the Israeli Embassy in Athens in December, Greek police said on Wednesday, according to a New York Times report. 

Greek police received a phone call early Sunday morning by a newspaper staffer who received an anonymous tip informing him about the location of a portable digital device hidden in a trash can, which contained a 19 page statement by the far-left Group of Popular Rebels.

Unidentified assailants opened fire on the Israeli embassy in Athens with a Kalashnikov assault rifle in the early hours of Dec. 12. No injuries were reported.
