Reports are conflicting about the attack on the Israeli Embassy in Turkey. CNN reports that the attacker used a knife against the security guards. Local accounts on Turkish NTV and other eye witnesses insist it is actually the attacker that used the gun against the security guards.
The attack comes after a series of ISIS related attacks against US targets in an apparant uptick in world wide Jihadist movement. Both Turkey and Israel recently signed a rapproachment deal which gives ISIS substantial reason toa attack targets there.
