The terrorist who carried out the shooting attack in Tel Aviv is identified as 23-year-old Mutaz Salah al-Khawaja, a Palestinian from the West Bank town of Ni’lin.

Hebrew-language and Palestinian media reports say al-Khawaja is a Hamas member.

He reportedly did not have an entry permit to Israel when he carried out the attack.
