Tel Aviv police chief says attack is over, warns against misinformation online

Tel Aviv police chief Amichai Eshed says the suspected attacker in a Tel Aviv ramming drove onto a bicycle lane in a “clear” manner and hit a number of people in the pedestrian area.

Police are looking into the attacker’s motives and background, and are searching the area for evidence, Eshed says in a statement to the media.

Eshed says the area has been closed off.

He says the incident has ended and there are no fears of other attackers at the moment.

Eshed warns against misinformation circulating online.

Multiple reports say the suspected attacker was from the Israeli town of Kfar Qasem.

Channel 12 reports the suspect worked in Tel Aviv.
