An updated article, “Israeli Police Identify Tel Aviv Terror Victims” appears here.

Four people were killed and four others seriously wounded when two terrorists opened fire in and near the popular Sarona Market in central Tel Aviv. One shooting was said to have taken place inside the shopping center; a second shooting was reported on an adjacent street.

Identitities of the victims have not yet been released.

Police said that both shooters were from the Hebron area in Judea. One of them was shot, and both were disarmed by authorities. Immediately following the attack, at least eight wounded were taken to the Ichilov Hospital, Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center. The hospital later announced the passing of four people, while four others remain in serious condition.

An eyewitness told Army Radio that chaos ensued at the scene as people attempted to flee during the shootings. The Tel Aviv-Jaffa Municipality issued a statement urging the public to stay away from the area.

The Sarona Market contains Israel’s largest indoor food market, with 91 shops in 8,700 square meters (93,000 square feet) of market space.

Since October, 29 Israelis and four others have been killed—and hundreds more injured—in the spate of terrorists attacks, although the violence had decreased in recent months.
