Ankara, 20 Dzulhijah 1437/2 September 2016 (MINA) – A man wielding a knife and shouting ‘Allahu Akbar’ has been shot and injured by a security guard after trying to storm the Israeli embassy in Turkey on Wednesday, dailymail.co.uk, reported.
It is believed the attacker, named as 41-year-old Turkish national Osman Nuri Caliskan, launched the stabbing attack at the office in Ankara while shouting ‘God is Great’.
But he was caught by security before reaching the entrance to the building and had the 12 inch knife wrapped inside newspaper.
Turkey’s NTV television said the attacker tried to enter the well-defended embassy but was ‘neutralised’ by being shot in the leg after ignoring a police warning to stop.
A spokesman for Israel’s Foreign Ministry says that the attacker was slightly wounded in the incident. (T/R07/R01)
