Terror Attack In Market

From Express:
A TERROR attack has left at least four people injured following a knife and gun rampage in an Israeli market.

Local media reported a man opened fire on a bustling market, injuring at least three people who were buying groceries ahead of the Jewish sabbath.

Israeli police have said one man also suffered stab wounds after being knifed in the neck with a screwdriver.

The ambulance service rushed to the scene and confirmed they treated a man and a woman, in their 50s, for bullet wound injuries to their lower bodies.

Paramedics added the stab victim was a 40-year-old man.

Police branded the incident a terror attack, adding the suspect was overpowered by shoppers using their bare hands.

The incident occurred at a market in the central Israeli town of Petah Tikva, on Thursday afternoon.

Spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the suspect was arrested at the scene.

A police investigation is underway.

According to reports the suspect is a 19-year-old Palestinian.

Video from the scene shows a large crowd gathered around the suspect, who is on the floor and surrounded by armed police.

The attack came just hours after an explosion ripped through the Gaza border with Egypt, killing two Palestinians in what appeared to be a strike on cross-border smuggling tunnels.

Israelis and Palestinians are locked in a bloody conflict with one another, with both side blaming the other for causing unrest.

Since 2015 Palestinians have carried out numerous stabbings, shoots and assaults, killing 41 Israelis and two Americans.

In the same time-frame Israeli forces have killed 235 Palestinians.
