Shooting incident over at Turkish Tel Aviv embassy

A Turkish embassy spokesman in Tel Aviv said the incident of Aug. 17 began when a man broke into the building with a knife by jumping over the outer fence. He was shot in the leg inside the building after taking two hostages and threatening to kill them and set it on fire if he was denied asylum in Turkey. He was later identified as a Palestinian called Nadiv Injessa, 32, from Ramallah. He was released from jail a few weeks ago after serving time for various offenses including breaking into the UK embassy four years ago and demanding asylum there too.
Heavy police contingents and ambulances stood by outside the building for several hours. They were denied access by the embassy. The Palestinian was treated by the embassy staff and not released. 
Israeli security officials deny intelligence agencies ever had any connection with him.
