Shots at Turkey's Tel Aviv embassy

Wednesday, August 18, 2010 12:22:27 AM, Al Jazeera

Shots have been fired at Turkey's embassy in Israel amid conflicting reports of a hostage situation at the scene.

Israel's foreign ministry has said that a Palestinian man has taken hostages at the embassy, which has been sealed off by Israeli security forces.

But a Turkish foreign ministry source told Al Jazeera there were no hostages being held and said that the attacker had been shot in the leg by Turkish guards.

Turkish officials are reportedly refusing to allow Israeli police or rescue workers to enter the embassy, which is technically Turkish sovereign territory.

Israeli authorities have identified the attacker as Nadim Injaz, a Palestinian from the West Bank. He is reported to have demanded political asylum in Turkey.

Al Jazeera's Jacky Rowland, reporting from Jerusalem, said that circumstances inside the embassy were still unclear.

"The situation is still incredibly confused," she said. "It's still going on at the moment."

She said that Israeli hostage negotiators were on the scene, but it was unclear whether they were in contact with the attacker.

An Israeli Arab lawyer who spoke to the attacker by phone to try to calm him down said he had held hostage the Turkish counsul-general and his wife for some two hours.

They managed to escape after Turkish security officers shot and wounded the man, who was armed with a gun and a knife while he remained in the embassy where he barricaded himself in a room, the lawyer said.
