Man shot at Turkish embassy
Initial report: At least one person wounded in shooting incident at Turkish embassy in Tel Aviv Tuesday evening; police say another incident may still be ongoing within embassy walls, large forces deployed at scene
Initial report: At least one person sustained gunshot wounds at the Turkish embassy in Tel Aviv Tuesday evening.
According to initial reports from the shooting scene, a naked man arrived at the embassy and was shot
Meanwhile, another incident is reportedly taking place within the embassy walls. Witnesses at the site said several shots were fired, but no further information had been provided. Other witnesses reported seeing a bullet hole in one of the embassy's windows.
Large police forces were deployed at the scene and are waiting outside the building; diplomatic protocol prevents them from going in as the embassy is outside the Israel Police's jurisdiction. SWAT teams and police negotiators have also been rushed to the scene in the event that hostages are being held inside the embassy.
Magen David Adom ambulance service's Director Eli Bin arrived at the site of the incident because of its gravity.
"We were called to scene after being informed that someone was barricading himself at the embassy," he said. "When we arrived, a Turkish representative said there is no need for us to come in and did not allow us to enter. We know with certainty that there is one gunshot victim but we don't know his condition."
"While we were at the site, more shots were fired, but at this time we donít quite know what's going on inside the embassy and are waiting outside, along with other security forces, until we get our orders," he said.
Israeli paramedics were eventually allowed into the embassy, about an hour after the incident was reported
The Foreign Ministry is coordinating the handling of the affair in light of its diplomatic sensitivities.
Riot police forces were also dispatched to the area for fear that the situation may get out of hand as more people arrive at the scene.
Accroding to earlier reports, police forces sealed off the area and were holding up traffic on HaYarkon Street, where the embassy is located.
The Turkish embassy in Tel Aviv gained prominence in recent months after several anti-Turkish rallies were held in the area. The demonstrations were held to protest Turkey's attitude to Israel and developments surrounding the lethal IDF raid on a Turkish Gaza-bound vessel.
