Tel Aviv - A Palestinian attacker stabbed wildly and injured seven people near a Tel Aviv nightclub after stealing a taxi to commit his act.
A 20-year-old resident of Nablus, Israel attacked a cab driver and carjacked his taxi to get to a nightclub, which was filled with up to 1,000 teenagers. Jerusalem Post reports that he rams Border Police road block, gets out, screams "Allah Akbar" and begins stabbing people. Several people were injured in the attack, one was a security guard and five were Border Police, also three civilians were injured.
After carjacking the taxi, the attacker drove to the area of the nightclub where he rammed a roadblock which had previously set up. Several civilians and a border policeman were hurt in the roadblock assault.
On exiting the car,a police spokeswoman is quoted as saying "He then got out of the car, screamed Alla hu akbar, and went on a knife attack,"
After being tackled during the knife attack on the security personnel and subdued, the attacker was taken to Wolfson Hospital for treatment of his injuries.
The recent attacks on civilian targets appears to signal an end to a period of relatively few attacks by Palestinian factions against the Israeli population. Also on Sunday morning one Israeli was killed while 17 were injured in an apparent terrorist attack by a truck driver. Aviv Morag, 29, was speaking to his father on his cell phone when his Volkswagen was run over by the 20 ton Volvo truck driven by the unnamed Arab from Kafr Kasim. A court has issued a gag order on the identification of the Arab.
The driver who then rammed several other vehicles finally collided with a bus and came to a halt next to it, the last passenger had just gotten off the bus. The police are greeting the suggestion of a mechanical malfunction after a flat tire by the Arab drive with suspicion due to the extent of carnage left in his wake.
