Shots have been fired in Tel Aviv, Israel, at the Turkish embassy, Israeli police say.

There are unconfirmed reports that a hostage situation is developing inside the embassy compound.

Unconfirmed reports of hostages being taken.

(how many is unclear at the moment)

I think this is almost certainly something to do with the recent choppy Israel / Turkey relations, since the flotilla incident and the refusal of allowing Israeli planes to land.

I'll update as soon as i get more info:

But for now i can't add anything else until more news and leaks filter out.

Israeli foreign ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor confirmed that the attacker was holding hostages.

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.

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.

"This is a hostage situation," Israeli foreign ministry spokesman Yigal Palmor said.

A lawyer told Israel Radio that the hostages, the consul and his wife, escaped.

The man reportedly said he had a flammable liquid and threatened, "I will kill any Jew that enters."


So it seems the hostage taker is a Palestinian and is threatening the Israeli jews.
