New Delhi, Feb 14: The Israeli women diplomat, hurt badly in a car bomb blast yesterday, is likely to be flown back to her country once her condition stablises.  


Tal Yehoshua (40), wife of a Israeli Defence Attache, who herself is a diplomat and working in the mission, was critically injured in the explosion and underwent surgeries to remove splinters from her spine and liver.

“At the moment we are not working on her being airlifted immediately. She has to be stable and recover before we do that. The doctors have to give a clearance for the same,” Israeli embassy spokesperson David Goldfarb said here.

He said “once stable, naturally the diplomat would like to go back home.”

Meanwhile, sources said two Israeli doctors, who are assisting the team treating her, have suggested that she may be moved by Friday. The Israeli doctors arrived here late last night.

Doctors at Primus hospital here have removed a small portion of her injured liver during the surgery at a private hospital here.

Doctors treating her are of the opinion that she needs to be in constant medical observation for next 24 hours even as she was conscious and talking to her family.

The diplomat was injured in a suspected terror attack when the embassy car she was travelling in exploded seconds after a moto-cycle borne youth placed a magnetic explosive on the vehicle at a traffic junction.
