Newsline: Israeli Embassy in Ankara ups security after failed attack

Security at the Israeli Embassy in Ankara was bolstered following a failed attack outside the compound. Turkish police maintains an increased presence at the site as a matter of routine, and has boosted deployment even further following the foiled attack. The incident took place in the early hours of Wednesday afternoon, when a man, later identified as Osman Nuri Caliskan, 38, charged security guards stationed at the main entrance to the Israeli diplomatic compound in the Turkish capital. The guards called to the man to stop, but he ignored them, shouting “Allahu akbar” (“God is great”) and “We’ll stop bloodshed in the Middle East,” as he charged the guards. They opened fire in his direction, and shot him in the leg.
