Armed civilians and a police officer who witnessed the incident intervened and shot the assailant. The injured were taken to nearby hospitals for treatment. Among the injured are a 46-year-old woman in serious condition with multiple internal injuries, two victims in their 30s in moderate condition and two people with minor injuries.
The Palestinian terror group Hamas hailed the attack as “heroic revenge for the military operation in Jenin.” The IDF is currently conducting a large-scale military operation in the city of Jenin in northern Samaria.
Finance Minister Bezalel Smotrich commented on the attack, emphasizing the need for national unity and determination in the face of terror. He said: “Our enemies want to harm us in Tel Aviv, in Eli and throughout Israel, and against this we must show unity and determination. Our heroic soldiers continue to work to deal a blow to the terrorists and their henchmen in Jenin, and we pray for their well-being and success. The Israel Defense Forces will hold accountable anyone who tries to harm us.”
