(JNS.org) Four unidentified attackers riding on two motorcycles fired shots at the Israeli Embassy in the Greek capital of Athens early on Friday morning. No injuries were reported.

“Any terrorist attack hitting at the heart of democracy hits the heart of the country,” Greek government spokeswoman Sofia Voultepsi said, Reuters reported. The Israeli Foreign Ministry, meanwhile, attributed the attack to the influence of anti-Israel incitement by Palestinian leaders and pro-Palestinian groups.

Police said they found 54 bullet casings about 130 feet from the embassy building following the attack. The assailants used a Kalashnikov assault rifle.
