A security guard, was attacked by an ax wielding mentally unstable Jew from Bat Yam in front of the U.S. embassy on HaYarkon Street in Tel Aviv. Police is on its way.
Embassy guards returned fire at the attacker in response, hitting him and later arresting him.
A group of about 100 Arabs, calling itself the Northern Branch of the Islamic Movement, a radical group headed by Sheikh Raed Salah, was demonstrating in front of the embassy this morning.
Embassy spokesperson Luba Samri told reporters that “a suspect came to the US embassy at 11:00 am (4 AM eastern) with a knife and an axe and attacked a security guard.” She said the guard was injured in the leg, and his fellow officers opened fire.
CORRECTION: The original report was that it was an Arab attacker, and that is not the case.Jewish Press News Briefs
