The incident comes amid a particularly tense period in political developments in the country.

"An attack today with gas canisters against my spouse's office. That's where her unrelenting targeting, by the backrooms of Maximos (mansion) and their mouthpieces lead to, which, of course, aim to hurt me. We're not afraid of them and this will not pass," Kyriakos Mitsotakis said, in a Tweet on his account.
