An armed Israeli man attacked a guard at the U.S. Embassy In Tel Aviv Tuesday, the Associated Press reports. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is expected to arrive in Israel Tuesday to help secure a cease-fire between Israel and Hamas.
A knife and ax-wielding Israeli man attacked and lightly wounded a security guard at the U.S. Embassy in Tel Aviv on Tuesday before he was apprehended at the scene, police said.
Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the assailant was an Israeli citizen in his early 40s. He said man’s motive was unknown, but political motives were not suspected and the incident had nothing to do with Israel’s battle with Hamas militants in Gaza.
