1 Dead 10 Wounded in Tel Aviv Terror Attacks

One person was killed and as many as 10 people were wounded in stabbing attacks at and near the Jaffa port in the Tel Aviv area.

The Tuesday evening attacks came less than two hours after terror attacks in Jerusalem and central Israel left a haredi Orthodox man and two Israeli Border Police officers seriously injured.

In the Jaffa attack, four of the injured are reported to be in serious condition and four others in moderate condition, according to Israel’s Channel 2. One victim died at the hospital. The dead man was identified by Israeli media as a tourist, though no other details were immediately released.

At the entrance to the Jaffa port, on its heavily trafficked promenade, the assailant stabbed two people before attacking others as he moved southward, including near the Dolphinarium Club on the border with Tel Aviv, according to reports.

Police said the assailant was “neutralized.”

At the time of the attack, U.S. Vice President Joe Biden was located less than two miles away, in an appearance at the Peres Center for Peace. The Tel Aviv-Jaffa municipality vowed to step up security in the wake of the attack.
