Three People Killed in Stabbing Rampage Near Tel Aviv, Israel 

HeadlineMay 06, 2022

Israeli police have launched a manhunt for attackers who killed three people and injured several others Thursday during a rampage through an ultra-Orthodox community near Tel Aviv. Police say at least two attackers — each wielding an ax or a knife — randomly attacked pedestrians in the town of Elad before fleeing. The attack came as Israelis celebrated Independence Day; it follows a series of deadly attacks inside Israel committed by Palestinians and Arab citizens of Israel — and retaliatory violence by Israel, which has killed at least 47 Palestinians this year. In response, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas warned Jewish settlers in the occupied West Bank not to exact revenge.
