Fatality in Tel Aviv attack said to be foreign tourist

The Magen David Adom emergency service says medics have confirmed one fatality during a terror incident in Tel Aviv.

The death is a man around the age of 30, medics say.

Several reports say the fatality was a foreign tourist who was visiting Israel.

The Walla news site says the fatality was Italian, and the attacker was an Arab Israeli.

Medics are treating four wounded, including two in moderate condition and two who are lightly injured.

The wounded have been taken to Tel Aviv’s Ichilov Hospital and Holon’s Wolfson Hospital.

Conflicting reports say the attacker fired out the window of his vehicle, then crashed; or ran people over, then got out and started firing his weapon.

Footage said to be from the scene shows an overturned vehicle and what appears to be police firing at a downed attacker.
