Israeli embassy attacked in Turkey; attacker shot
Two attackers launched the attack, the Daily Sabah newspaper reported, with one of the suspects shot and arrested by police.
A local guard shot and wounded an assailant near the Israeli embassy in Ankara on Wednesday, an Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman said.
"The staff is safe. The attacker was wounded before he reached the embassy," the spokesman said in a text message. "The assailant was shot and wounded by a local security guard."
According to Turkish media, the incident occurred as two people made attempts to enter the embassy in Ankara. NTV added that one person was "injured and neutralized" in the incident.
A spokesperson for the Israeli Embassy in London confirmed an attempted attack but said the assailants were prevented from entering the embassy building in Ankara.
“There was an attempted attack outside the embassy but all staff are safe and the attackers were stopped outside,” he told The Independent.
