Turkish diplomatic sources asked Israel to increase security at the Turkish Embassy in Tel Aviv in the wake of Tuesday's attack on the embassy by a Palestinian gunman, Turkish daily Hurriyet reported on Wednesday.

“This incident has proven that there is a security weakness. The results of Tuesday’s attack would have been worse if our security personnel had not been able to act in time,” a Turkish diplomatic source told Hurriyet.
