Gunmen Kill Three In Israel Attack

At least three people have been killed, and a further six wounded, after Palestinian gunmen opened fire, at an open-air shopping area, in the Israeli city of Tel Aviv.

Two Palestinian gunmen killed three people and wounded six others after opening fire at a popular open-air shopping and restaurant area of central Tel Aviv, Israeli police say.

The attacks took place in two locations in Sarona Market, close to Israel’s defence ministry and main army HQ.

Police said the gunmen were from Yatta, a Palestinian village near the West Bank town of Hebron. Both are in custody. One is undergoing surgery in hospital, police added.

There has been a rise in Palestinian attacks on Israelis since last year, with a series of shootings, stabbings and car rammings, although the number of incidents had dropped in recent months.
