Tel Aviv resident Sam was having dinner nearby when the shooting started.
“We were sitting at a restaurant on Dizengoff and suddenly there was a huge racket and a wave of people as everyone started running. Tables were falling and we got swept up in it and ran,” he says. “No one knew what was going on.”
He says that he and his wife immediately headed toward home. “As we walked along Dizengoff all we could see at all the bars were fallen tables and broken glass.”
