Three people were killed and at least eight others were wounded in a shooting attack in Tel Aviv at around 9:30 pm Wednesday night. One victim is listed in critical condition and four others are listed in serious condition.
Two gunmen opened fire in the Sarona Market, reportedly from two separate locations. The market is a popular shopping and commercial area. Police confirmed that two terrorists were arrested and one terrorist was shot and is in being treated in Ichilov Hospital. Videos show an armed civilian returning fire at a terrorist. He is listed in moderate condition. According to unconfirmed police sources, two of the assailants were disguised as religious Jews and sat down to eat at a restaurant before beginning the attack.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu landed in Israel shortly after the attack, returning from Russia. He immediately convened a security cabinet meeting.
