At least four killed in a shooting in a city near Tel Aviv

At least four people have died this Tuesday in a shooting in the Tel Aviv area, according to the Magem David Adom (MDA) medical emergency service, in the second such attack in Israel in two days.

“Paramedics declared four dead and evacuated a fifth person in critical condition to hospital,” reports an MDA spokesman, specifying that the incident occurred in Bnei Brak, a city on the outskirts of Tel Aviv. The circumstances of the same are not clear at the moment.

According to a spokesman for the United Hatzalah Emergency Service, the shooting took place at various locations in Bnei Brak. This is the second incident of this type in two days, after the attack this Sunday in which two policemen were shot dead in the north of the country. The ISIS terror group claimed responsibility for the attack in the northern city of Hadera. Four Israeli civilians were also killed in a series of stabbings last week.
