Attack on Israeli Embassy in Belgrade, Attacker Killed.Serbian Interior Minister Ivica Dacic: 'This is an act of terrorism.'

In Belgrade, there was an attempted attack on the Israeli embassy, ??in which a policeman was injured.

The attacker was killed, according to the Serbian government. According to Serbian TV RTS, the attacker used a crossbow, which injured the gendarme.

The injured man is a Serbian police officer guarding the Israeli embassy, ??who, although hit in the neck by a crossbow dart, managed to shoot and kill the attacker, the Interior Ministry in Belgrade reported. Around 11:00, "an unknown person shot a crossbow at a member of the security forces, who was ensuring the security of the Israeli embassy, ??injuring him in the neck," the ministry wrote. The officer underwent surgery to remove the dart and is now in intensive care, in "very serious" condition.

Interior Minister Ivica Dacic, who immediately classified the incident as Wahhabi jihadist terrorism - Wahhabism is a fundamentalist branch of Sunni Islam from which both Al Qaeda and ISIS originated - said that investigations were underway. In Belgrade, Dacic said, security measures had been tightened. Several people had been detained "as a precaution".

The Israeli Foreign Ministry said that "no employees were injured" in the terrorist attack on the mission in Belgrade. "The embassy is closed," the ministry spokesman said, adding that "one local police officer was injured and that the circumstances of the incident are being investigated".
