Courageous Palestinians continue stabbing operations: 2 zionist dead, 2 injured in Tel Aviv
An alleged stabbing attack has left two Israelis dead and two others wounded amid continued unrest in the occupied Palestinian territories, where Tel Aviv’s forces have been engaged in acts of violence against Palestinian citizens.
The purported stabbing occurred in an office building on Ben Tsavi street in southern Tel Aviv on Thursday.
Israeli Police spokeswoman Luba Samri said a 20-year-old Israeli died at the scene and a second man, aged around 50, died from his wounds after being taken to a hospital.
Meanwhile, a Palestinian suspect, who was injured in Thursday’s incident, was arrested. Israeli police said the suspect was as a 24-year-old from the town of Dura, located 11 kilometers (6.8 miles) southwest of the West bank city of al-Khalil (Hebron).
Some Israeli media reported that the attack took place around a room used as a synagogue in the office building.
In another incident on Thursday, two Israeli were killed and seven others were injured in an alleged shooting attack near the illegal Gush Etzion settlement bloc in the occupied West Bank. According to Israeli police, the assailant opened fire from his vehicle. The attacker was shot, but his condition was unclear.
Tensions in the occupied Palestinian territories have dramatically escalated since the Israeli regime’s imposition of restrictions in August on the entry of Palestinian worshipers to the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in East al-Quds (Jerusalem).
Palestinians say the Tel Aviv seeks to change the status quo of al-Aqsa. They are also angry at Israeli extremists, who escorted by army forces, have stepped up their raids on the sensitive site, which is Islam’s third holiest site after Masjid al-Haram in Mecca and Masjid al-Nabawi in Medina.
Last month, senior Hamas leader, Ismail Haniyeh, called the recent spate of clashes between Palestinians and Israeli forces in the occupied West Bank and East al-Quds, an Intifada (uprising) against the Tel Aviv regime.
Around 90 Palestinians and nearly 20 Israelis have been killed in the recent wave of violence since the start of October.
