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".
