Israeli Forces Kill Palestinian Blamed for Fatal Attack on Tel Aviv Bar

HeadlineApr 08, 2022

Israeli authorities have lifted a lockdown of central Tel Aviv after soldiers killed a Palestinian man blamed for a deadly shooting at a bar Thursday night that killed two people and injured 13 others. Israeli police say the alleged gunman died in a shootout near a mosque in southern Tel Aviv after a nine-hour manhunt. The attacker was identified as a 28-year-old Palestinian from Jenin, in the occupied West Bank. Jenin was the site of an Israeli raid last Saturday that saw three Palestinians killed in a shootout with Israeli forces. Thursday evening’s attack was the fourth deadly assault targeting Israelis in less than three weeks.
