Two Israelis killed in Tel Aviv stabbing attacks

A stabbing attack in Tel Aviv killed two people on Thursday, while the Palestinian assailant was injured and arrested, Israeli police said, in the first such incident in several days.


Police described the attacker as a 24-year-old from the Hebron area in the occupied West Bank.

One of those killed was an Israeli man of around 20, while the other was a man of around 50, police said.

Some Israeli media reported that the attack occurred around a room used as a synagogue in a larger building in Israel’s commercial capital. Other reports said it happened outside the building.
