Terrorist attack left four dead in central Tel Aviv yester- night.Israel Police Superintendent Micky Rosenfeld reported that Israelis will mourn those killed at the Sarona market for the next week and vowed that further action would be taken.
“Unfortunately, within the West Bank area we have seen Palestinians celebrating this attack,” said Rosenfeld. “Meanwhile here in Israel … we will be mourning for a week over the people that were lost — and we are talking about four innocent people that were shot to death, literally shot and killed at close range for no reason whatsoever.”
The attack, one of the deadliest in an eight-month wave of violence, took place around 10 p.m. local time in an upscale area of cafes and restaurants near the central military headquarters and Defense Ministry compound. A Fox News producer in Jerusalem confirmed five others were wounded in the attack and in severe condition.
The two attackers were described to Fox News as Palestinian cousins from Yata in the Hebron area of the West Bank who were known to Israeli authorities. The gunmen disguised themselves as Orthodox Jews, a law enforcement source told Fox News.
