Two killed, seven wounded in Tel Aviv shooting


TEL AVIV: Two people were killed and at least seven were wounded Friday when a gunman opened fire on a pub and nearby cafe in central Tel Aviv, the motive was not immediately clear. The shooting came amid a recent wave of Palestinian attacks on Israelis and days after the leader of the Islamic State (IS) group threatened the Jewish state with violence. However, police stressed they were investigating in “all directions”. Media reports identified the shooter as an Arab in his late twenties from northern Israel who had recently been jailed for trying to snatch a soldier’s weapon, but police refused to confirm.
