After more than a weeklong lull, terror returned to central Israel on Thursday. At least two civilians were killed and another ten wounded in a shooting attack on Dizengoff Street, in the middle of Tel Aviv. Overnight, police were still conducting a large hunt after the suspect. He was identified eventually in the early hours of Friday hiding near a mosque in Jaffa, and was shot and killed by a special police and Shin Bet force. The terrorist is a Palestinian from the northern West Bank.
