Israeli police received reports on a shooting attack outside the Sarona restaurant and retail center in central Tel Aviv, close to the Israeli military’s headquarters on Wednesday night.
Police said two Palestinian attackers, cousins in their twenties from the West Bank village of Yatta near Hebron, started shooting at people sitting in an outdoor area at a cafe in the complex.
So far, four people have been killed and four others who were hospitalized in serious condition have been stabilized.
A security guard at the scene captured one of the attackers, who was arrested by the Israeli police, while the second one ran several hundred meters away while continuing to shoot as people ran away.
He was shot and wounded in serious condition by security guards of the Israel Radio station located there, and is undergoing surgery.
Prime Minister Netanyahu convened an emergency consultation with heads of the Israeli defense establishment in Tel Aviv, close to the area of the attack.
Netanyahu will convene a meeting of the security cabinet, a 10-minister security forum, to discuss possible measures following the attack.
