Police in Greece has ramped up security around potential Israeli targets and increased its presence around the Embassy of Israel in Athens in light of the ongoing war in the Middle East.
State security and intelligence services are also involved in the operation, which apart from Israeli missions or businesses in Greece, is also designed to secure potential targets from attacks by sympathizers on either side of the conflict.
According to state broadcaster ERT, special attention is additionally being paid to camps hosting migrants and refugees from the Middle East, as well as at Palestinian community centers.
A gathering was held at Syntagma Square in downtown Athens on Sunday evening (8/10). Some protests burned an Israeli flag, while three foreigners were arrested and later released.
