Eight people were wounded in south Tel Aviv early Monday when a Palestinian man from the West Bank city of Nablus ran over policemen with a stolen taxi, exited the vehicle and stabbed additional people. The perpetrator was also lightly wounded as police struggled to arrest him.
Tel Aviv District Commander Aharon Eksol said the attack was “definitely an act of terror”.
The attack took place shortly after 1:30 A.M. outside the Haoman 17 club on the corner of Salame and Abarbanel streets in south Tel Aviv. At the time of the attack more than 2,000 people were partying at a major event inside the nightclub. Israel Border Police had been deployed on high alert to secure the event.
One of the wounded people is in critical condition, two are moderately wounded and the rest are lightly wounded. The wounded were taken to Tel Aviv’s Ichilov Hospital and Wolfson Medical Center, Holon.
