An 18-year-old Palestinian from Nablus in the West Bank stabbed and lightly wounded three men and a woman in Tel Aviv on Sunday afternoon in a terror attack near the Herods Hotel on Hayarkon Street, along the city’s seaside promenade.

Shlomi Sagi, the commander of the Tel Aviv Police’s Yarkon District, said the terrorist was overpowered by hotel staff and police.

“Since we were already deployed in the area, he was arrested within seconds,” he said.

Shortly after his arrest, the attacker was handed over to the Shin Bet and after a preliminary investigation, security officials concluded that the rampage was nationalistically motivated.

Magen David Adom paramedics provided emergency treatment to the victims before evacuating them to the Ichilov Hospital at the Sourasky Medical Center in Tel Aviv.

The wounded individuals included two men, a 50-year-old woman and a 70-year-old man.
