Update on terrorist attack in TA. Witness: Driver was shouting “Death to Jews” and “Allahu Akbar”

Per the Jerusalem Post:

A witness who claims he stopped the driver who hit several cars on Tel Aviv’s Bar Lev Street Sunday in what police called a suspected terror attack, said he initially thought thedriver had just lost control of his breaks.

Arik Levy told Israel radio that when he went to go help the driver, he saw him continue to hit cars and street lights, and heard him saying “Allahu Akbar” and “death to Jews.”

Levy said he ran up to the driver, the two struggled for a short time, and then police arrived at the scene after 10 minutes. 

Another witness who saw the incident said the driver “looked crazy.”

The eye witness, 18 year old Natalie, said she saw the truck driver driving in zigzags, and “deliberately hitting everything he saw.” 

“It was obvious it was deliberate,” she said. “He was looking at the road and then back down at his wheel. He looked crazy.”
