The Ankara representative's office distinguished the man as Osman Nuri Caliskan, a Turkish national conceived in 1975, and said that a preparatory examination showed that he seemed, by all accounts, to be rationally shaky and has no known connections to any dread gathering. 

The man was conveying a 12-inch-long blade and a sack and was caught by police in the wake of being shot in the leg. 

The state-run Anadolu Agency said police guarding the government office shot him in the leg after he took out a blade wrapped inside a daily paper, began to yell and disregarded the security officers' notices to stop and drop the blade.

Ten Turkish activists were slaughtered in the assault.

An announcement from the Israeli Embassy said the aggressor acted alone and attempted to cut a Turkish cop. 

"One of the Turkish cops arranged before the international safe haven reacted instantly and shot the assailant in the foot to kill him," the government office said. "The cop's activity conveyed the occurrence to an end." 

The announcement said: "The international safe haven believes the Turkish powers to control and examine the episode." 

Police blocked streets prompting the vigorously secured international safe haven building. Turkish media reports said international safe haven staff was moved to an asylum.
