An assailant wielding a knife was shot and wounded by the Turkish police in Ankara on Wednesday after he attempted to storm in the Israeli embassy. The Israeli Foreign Ministry says no embassy staff were harmed.

Officials said security personnel thwarted his attempt by shooting him in the leg before he could enter the embassy.

A police officer posted at the embassy in the Gaziosmanpasa district in the south of Ankara, opened fire, injuring the individual in the leg after he ignored repeated warnings by police to drop his weapon.

"According to initial reports Osman Nuri C appears to be (suffering from) mental illness", Ankara authorities said in a statement to Anadolu.

Reports suggest that the assailant reached the "outer perimeter" of the embassy. "We do not know if he was attacking police officers or the embassy itself". "The police officer's action brought the incident to an end".

The Turkish parliament in August approved a deal to normalize relations with Israel after a six-year rift sparked by a 2010 Israeli raid on a Gaza-bound aid flotilla that left 10 Turkish nationals dead.

"The embassy trusts the Turkish forces to control and investigate the incident", the statement added.

Turkey is on edge because of several terrorist attacks in recent months and a failed coup against the government of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

Three Israelis and an Iranian were killed in March in a bombing in central Istanbul blamed on Islamic State (IS) jihadists. Israel subsequently upgraded its security advice for Turkey, encouraging citizens to leave.
