One Killed, Seven Injured In Tel Aviv Attack As Israel Faces ‘Multi-Front’ Terrorist Offensive

Prime Minister Netanyahu: “We will cripple our enemies, they will pay a heavy price.”

One person was killed and seven others were injured when a Palestinian terrorist rammed his car into pedestrians in Tel Aviv. Friday night’s incident comes amid a surge in deadly terrorist and rocket attacks on Israel as the Muslim month of Ramadan coincides with weeklong Jewish Passover celebrations.

The terrorist struck at two separate locations along Tel Aviv’s seaside promenade before police took him out. “Following the ramming attack, the terrorist got out of the vehicle and tried to shoot at police officers, but due to the weapon being jammed, he did not succeed and was neutralized by one of the police officers,” the i24news reported. The attacker was identified as a 45-year-old Arab resident of Israel.

All the victims were reportedly foreign tourists. According to the Israeli TV channel i24news, “the person murdered in the attack identified as Alessandro Farini, a 35-year-old tourist from Italy, while the injured were British and Italian citizens.”

“EMTs and Paramedics have pronounced a 30 year old male deceased, and are evacuating to Ichilov and Wolfson Hospitals 5 victims struck by a car, including 3 in moderate condition – a 74 year old male, a 39 year old male, and a 17 year old female, and 2 in mild condition – a 50 year old male and 70 year old female,” Israel’s national emergency medical service, Magen David Adom, said in a statement seen by Legal Insurrection.

The Jerusalem Post reported the Friday night attack:

A 36-year-old Italian citizen was murdered and seven were injured in two terror attacks carried out by the same terrorist in Tel Aviv.

The terrorist was driving along the Tel Aviv promenade area when he began shooting at nearby civilians, killing the man in the process.

Israel Police later said the terrorist attempted to ram pedestrians in Tel Aviv before his car overturned, possibly due to attempts made to neutralize him.

An Israel Police officer shot the terrorist as he approached the car, with the terrorist appearing to reach for his weapon.

The terrorist was later identified as a Israeli citizen from Kafr Kassem.

At least seven civilians were injured in the attacks, including three who were moderately wounded and rushed to Ichilov Hospital in Tel Aviv for treatment.

Four persons were lightly injured and were rushed to Wolfson Medical Center in Holon for treatment.

All the victims in the attack are tourists, Magen David Adom’s spokesperson confirmed. The man who was killed was a resident of Rome, a 36-year-old Italian citizen named Alessandro Parini, Italy’s Foreign Minister stated early on Saturday morning.

The car ramming in Tel Aviv was the second deadly terror attack in a single day. Earlier on Friday, a terrorist gunmen killed two sisters, aged 16 and 20, and critically wounded their mother when their vehicle passed near the Palestinian town of Jericho.

“Two sisters in their 20s were killed and a their mother was in critical condition on Friday in a drive-by shooting attack on the West Bank. The father who was traveling separately was witness to the shooting,” the Israeli news website Ynet reported.

Their father, who was travelling in a separate car, witnessed the tragic crime “The girls’ father, a British-born rabbi who has lived in north London, had been driving with two other children some way behind them in another car,” the UK weekly Jewish Chronicle reported.

Israeli security forces are carrying out a manhunt for the fugitive terrorist in the Jordan Valley region.

Netanyahu vows to “cripple” the enemy as IDF hits terrorists in south Lebanon, Gaza

The Ramadan terror surge inside Israel is accompanied with massive rocket barrages by Palestinian terrorist groups on two fronts.

Hamas-affiliated terrorist groups, under protection of the Iran-backed terror militia Hezbollah, are firing rockets from southern Lebanon into northern Israel. Meanwhile, southern Israeli town and cities are under rocket fire from Gaza-based Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist groups.

Israel responded to the two-pronged attack by hitting terrorist targets in southern Lebanon and Gaza. “Israel launched rare strikes in southern Lebanon early Friday and pressed on with bombing targets in the Gaza Strip,” the Israel Hayom newspaper reported.

The Israeli military vowed to eliminate the new Hamas-Hezbollah terrorist axis emerging along the northern border with Lebanon. “The IDF will not allow the Hamas terrorist organization to operate from within Lebanon and holds the state of Lebanon responsible for every directed fire emanating from its territory,” the Israeli military said in a statement obtained by the Legal Insurrection.

Prime Minister Netanyahu ordered the mobilization of border police reservists to counter the cross-border threat. As unspecified number of IDF reservists have also been called to duty.

“We will cripple our enemies, they will pay a heavy price,” he assured.

The Times of Israel reported prime minister’s stance:

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered an immediate call-up on Friday of Border Police reserves officers, in a major step that likely reflects fears of a further escalation following two deadly terror attacks in a single day, and amid high tensions nationwide after a night of retaliatory airstrikes by Israel in the Gaza Strip and rare artillery fire into Lebanon.

Palestinians hand out sweets to celebrate deadly attacks on Israelis

Meanwhile, Palestinians were seen handing out sweets in West Bank streets celebrating the wave of terror attacks against innocent Israelis.

After Friday’s prayers Muslim “worshipers’ at Jerusalem’s Al Aqsa Mosque raised Hamas flag and cheered the deadly attacks.

On the Temple Mount, “hundreds of people gather[ed] and wave[d] Hamas and Palestinian flags, calling chants supporting a deadly terror attack in the West Bank’s Jordan Valley in which two Israeli sisters were killed,” The Times of Israel reported . “They also praise[d] Lebanon, from where dozens of rockets were launched yesterday at Israel in the worst cross-border violence since 2006.”

Notice how many of the replies to Haddad’s tweets include Tel Aviv (built by Jews on Jewish-purchased land more than 100 years ago, and well within pre-1967 Israel) as occupied territory, or call for the end of Israel’s existence, and express the idea that the only good Jew is a dead Jew. That’s apart from the various blood libels and propaganda that these people seem to have swallowed whole. And many of those replies appear to be from westerners.
