Embassy gunman threatens to 'kill any Jew'

    A Palestinian man has broken into the Turkish embassy in Tel Aviv and is threatening to kill any Jew who enters the building.

    It is believed two people are being held hostage inside the embassy on Hayarkon Street by Nadim Injaz, a Palestinian from Ramallah. One person, thought to be Injaz, has been shot and injured.

    Israel Radio said that rescue workers attempted to enter the building but did not bring anyone out.

    Injaz was arrested in 2006 after an eight-hour standoff at the British Embassy in Tel Aviv, during which he wielded a plastic gun. Nobody was injured in that incident.

    Injaz, then 28, said he had stormed the embassy because his demands for political asylum had been ignored.

    He said he had been an informant for Israel’s security services and said he feared that Palestinian militants would kill him for this.

    He said at the time: "They will either take me out of here to Europe, or as a body."
