After hours of manhunts, Israeli police located and killed a Palestinian who killed at least two people in the heart of Tel Aviv on Friday, April 7, an attack that once again mourns Israel .

″Following a difficult night and long hours of searches by the police, the internal security services and the army, we succeeded this [Friday] morning […] in tightening the noose around the terrorist who was killed in an exchange of fire,” police chief commissioner Yaacov Shabtai said.

The assailant, a Palestinian from the occupied West Bank according to the police, was killed near a mosque in the Jaffa sector, a few kilometers from the site of the attack which caused scenes of chaos according to witnesses.

Thursday, around 9:00 p.m., the man opened fire on Dizengoff Street, an artery in the center of the coastal metropolis known for its cafes, bars and restaurants, killing two people and injuring a dozen, some of them seriously.

“An atmosphere of war”

The security forces were immediately deployed in force launching a manhunt.

“It’s a war atmosphere, soldiers and police everywhere. They searched a restaurant, people were crying and running in all directions,” Binyamin Blum, an employee at a restaurant near the scene of the attack, told AFP.

Dror Yeheskel, 39, was having a drink with his brother on Dizengoff Street when the shooting started. “People started running towards a restaurant shouting ‘there is a terrorist’,” he told AFP. We ran inside the restaurant. In the crush, people were falling. Staff were pushing people into the kitchen. We were huddled together and panicked.”

Immediately after the attack Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said: “No matter where this terrorist is hiding, we will find him. And whoever helped him, indirectly or directly, will pay the price.”

According to the Shin Beth, the Israeli internal intelligence service, the assailant was 28 years old and named Raed Hazem. He is a Palestinian with “no known affiliation” to an armed faction and was originally from the Jenin area in the northern West Bank, a Palestinian territory occupied by Israel since 1967.

It is from this region where was also from the author of an attack which killed five people on March 29, including two Ukrainians and an Israeli Arab policeman, in Bnei Brak, an ultra-Orthodox Jewish town located on the outskirts of Tel- Aviv.
