According to reports, at least two people were feared dead and seven others injured following a deadly shooting incident at a bar in the Israeli capital of Tel Aviv.
Israeli police spokesman, Micky Rosenfeld, said that the attack, which targeted a bar on Dizengoff Street in central Tel Aviv, took place at 3:00 pm local time on Friday afternoon.
The gunman has been identified as Nesha’at Milhem, a 29-year-old Palestinian citizen of Israel from Arara, a town in central Israel.
Reports say the suspect was identified when his father called and informed police after seeing him on television.
Rosenfeld said the assailant is still at large and that Israeli police “are searching Tel Aviv”.
