    Two people have been killed and one other person was injured in a stabbing attack at a synagogue in south Tel Aviv.

    The injured victim, a man in his 50s, is in moderate condition. He was treated at the scene by Magen David Adom paramedics before being evacuated to Ichilov hospital.

    The Arab terrorist who carried out the attack was tackled and held by a civilian until police arrived to arrest him, and sustained light injuries in the course of being captured.

    He has been identified as a 36-year-old resident of Dura, close to Hevron, with no previous criminal record and was given a legal work permit to be in Tel Aviv following security checks – he worked at a restaurant in Yafo, a suburb of Tel Aviv to the south.

    The attack took place at a synagogue in the Panorama building along Ben Tzvi Street in southern Tel Aviv, as afternoon prayers were being conducted.

    Security forces scrambled to the scene initially responded to reports of a possible second terrorist by conducting a sweep of the area, but have confirmed that at this point those claims appear to have been mistaken.

    MDA paramedics Moshe Danenberg and Younis Niniv recounted the disturbing scene they encountered.

    “The sight was difficult. At the entrance to one of the businesses in the building a 32-year-old man was lying (on the ground) unconscious, without a pulse and not breathing, after suffering from stab wounds to his upper body.

    “Close to him lay a 30-year-old man with stab wounds to his upper body, and a floor below we located an additional casualty, a man of about 50, fully conscious.

    “We quickly provided them with first aid at the scene and immediately evacuated them to Ichilov hospital.”

    Deputy Defense Minister Rabbi Eli Ben-Dahan responded to the attack shortly afterwards, noting that it took place just a day after the first anniversary of the bloody terrorist attack at a Jerusalem synagogue which killed five people.

    “Just yesterday we marked one year since the despicable massacre at a synagogue in the Har Nof neighborhood of Jerusalem, a year in which terror has hit us without mercy – and now another despicable attack has occurred, this time at a synagogue in Tel Aviv,” Ben-Dahan said.

    “Terror is terror, and it doesn’t matter where it occurs,” he continued, hinting at the recent terrorist attacks in Europe. In Israel’s case “its roots are the incitement from the Palestinian leadership which encourages (violence).

    Only by continuing to act with a firm hand against terrorists and their supporters could Israel hope to combat the ongoing wave of terrorism, he added.

    “Only destroying the homes of the terrorists swiftly after an attack and expelling their families will deter the next perpetrator.”

    The Tel Aviv attack follows two other thwarted stabbings earlier Monday.

    In Hevron, an Arab teen was arrested by soldiers close to the Cave of the Patriarchs, after he approached them with a concealed knife.

    Earlier in Gush Etzion, just north of Hevron, three Arab women were detained after attempting to infiltrate an army base armed with knives.

    No Israelis were injured in either of those incidents.

    1. No matter how hard the fight Sh’Lemus Ha’Aretz seems. We should remember what it was like to fight for yiddishkeit in the Former Soviet Union (the 2nd most powerful country in the world).

      And with the Rebbe Shlita’s Brochos & guidance we won. & now the Soviet Union only exists in history books.
