Palestinian terrorist attack in Tel Aviv leaves 7 injured

Per the Jerusalem Post:

Seven people were injured in south Tel Aviv early Monday morning, after a terrorist from the West Bank carjacked a taxi and rammed it into a police road block protecting a Tel Aviv nightclub, before going on a stabbing spree.

Police said the terrorist, a Nablus resident in his 20s, entered a taxi near the beginning of Salameh Street, and carjacked the driver, stabbing him in the hand, according to police. He then drove for approximately a kilometer down Salameh Street towards the Haoman 17 nightclub, which was filled with people in and around the building.

Border Police had set up a road block ahead of time at the entrance to the club on Abarbanel Street [as part of routine security]. The terrorist rammed the road block, and struck a number of civilians and a Border Policeman. 

He then got out of the car, screamed Allahu Akbar [God is greatest], and went on a knife attack…[and] stabbed five Border Policemen. One is seriously injured and two are moderately injured. The remainder are lightly injured.

Per Ha’aretz:

Tel Aviv District Commander Aharon Eksol said the attack is ‘definitely an act of terror’.

Per Israel Radio, via the Jerusalem Post:

“[Police are reporting that] the terror attack was definitely coordinated to strike the large youth party.”
