Attacker holds hostages at Turkish Embassy in Israel:
Newspaper ID’s him as a Palestinian who tried to seek asylum four years earlier
a diversion perhaps?
Excerpt from AP - AMI BENTOV Associated Press Writer
A lawyer told Israel Radio that the hostages, the consul and his wife, escaped.
Israel Radio reported from the scene that rescue workers with stretchers tried to enter the seaside embassy compound but left without bringing out any wounded.
The radio report said Turkish officials were not allowing Israeli police or rescue workers to enter the embassy.
“We know of one lightly injured person,” Eli Binn of the Israeli rescue service told Channel 10 TV.
The Israeli Maariv newspaper said the man called the paper, identifying himself as Nadim Injaz, a Palestinian who sought asylum at the British Embassy in Tel Aviv in 2006. He said he had a flammable liquid and threatened, “I will kill any Jew that enters.”
Oh dear...please don’t kill yourself and burn down the Turkish embassy! /sarc
Ugh. That reminds me eerily of another building where hostages were held.
Oh Br’er Rabbit. Please don’ throw me in dat briar patch!
You mena in London and the Libyan incident. . .ended well as far as I can recall. . . all the muslime bad guys dead.
Hostages escaped, Turks don’t want help...this is officially a non-problem. Chain the doors and go home.
