Greece has condemned mob attack on a Jerusalem Post reporter.

Greek Ambassador Kyriakos Loukakis sent a letter to the paper on Thursday apologizing for the Tuesday assault on Gil Shefler.

A former JTA intern, Shefler was assaulted in Athens while trying to film outside the National Archeological Museum, where gang members were beating migrants, refugees and the homeless.

The mob turned on Shefler, who was hospitalized for head and chest wounds. He is in good condition and has returned back to Israel, according to the Post.

A bloodied Shefler can be seen in his video of the incident.

In the letter to the Post, Loukakis said that “the Greek government unreservedly condemns the attack.” He said police were conducting a thorough investigation into the incident.
