The Chinese Ambassador, Du Wei, was found dead inside his residence, north of Tel Aviv.
A spokesperson for Isreal’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has confirmed the news to a CNN news associate.
Police are currently at the scene, but have not issued an official statement.
Currently many conspiracy theories are forming due to the Ambassador only arriving since February, at the beginning of the Covid19 pandemic, and in wake of a visit of U.S Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo.
He is so far believed to have died of natural causes, he was 52 years old.
