So why did he go to the Turkish Embassy to shoot Jews when there are Jews everywhere in Tel Aviv?
The culprit was identified as Nadim Injaz, an Arab from Ramallah who in the past had attempted to take hostages in the British embassy in Tel Aviv, using a fake gun. The gun he was carrying in Tuesday’s incident was also discovered to be fake. Turkish officials said that Injaz had been seeking asylum in Turkey, after Israel turned down his request for a work visa. Injaz was shot by embassy personnel, a spokesperson in Ankara said, when he tried to grab a worker in the embassy and hold him hostage.
According to the sources, the Arab insisted that Turkey protect him from Palestinian Authority forces, who he claimed were seeking to arrest him because he said he at one time worked with Israeli law enforcement authorities. An Israeli hostage negotiation team was on its way to the embassy as well. Israel National News
