Injured diplomat likely to be flown back to Israel

New Delhi: The Israeli women diplomat, hurt
badly in a car bomb blast on Monday, 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.
