The guards immediately initiated suspect arrest protocol, and were able to detain the suspect after firing a few warning shots in the air.
The motorcyclist was arrested and taken in for questioning. It is still unknown if the incident was accidental, or if the individual meant to test the embassy's security measures.
This is the second security incident involving the Israeli Embassy in Nairobi in recent weeks: In July it was revealed that Nairobi authorities apprehended two Iranian agents plotting to assassinate Israel's Ambassador to Kenya Gil Haskel, by planting a bomb in his car.
