What’s being described as a terror attack began with an assault today (Sunday afternoon) inside a Tel Aviv seafront hotel. At this point, we know of a total of four people who were injured when a Palestinian Arab male, about 18 years old, attacked them with wire-cutters.
He launched his assault in the hotel lobby on Hayarkon Street in Tel Aviv’s tourist precinct, according to Ynet which has security camera footage of the initial stages of the attack on its site at this hour. The photo above comes from different security cam footage on the Times of Israel site. From our viewing, it appears to be inside the Leonardo Beach Hotel (other reports quote other hotels). With three victims down, he then fled outside and into the street where he stabbed another person before being stopped and arrested by police.
Israel National News says those hurt are a man in his 70s, two men in their fifties and a woman in her fifties. All are lightly injured and all were treated at the scene before being taken to Ichilov Hospital by Magen David Adom ambulance.
The attacker, a resident of Nablus, is evidently unhurt but likely to be offended by what Israel’s justice system has in mind for him.
