Israel suffered 'very heavy price' in attack near Tel Aviv: Israeli minister

Israeli forces and rescue personnel work at the scene following an attack in the city of Elad on May 5, 2022.

Israel’s Public Security Minister Omer Bar-Lev said the regime suffered “a very heavy price” after three people were killed and several others hurt in an attack on the occasion of Nakba (Catastrophe Day) which marks Israel's eviction of Palestinians from their homeland and declaring its existence.

Following the stabbing attack in the central city of Elad on Thursday night, police, internal spy agency Shin Bet, and the army were chasing the assailants, Bar-Lev said, according to Press TV.

Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett also pledged to arrest those responsible for the operation, describing them as “saboteurs.” Israeli security officials extended the closure on the West Bank and Gaza until next Sunday, Gantz added.

The Magen David Adom emergency service said three people were killed and four others were wounded in the attack near Tel Aviv on Thursday night. It added that two of the wounded were in serious conditions.

Police said the attackers fled in a vehicle. Security forces set up roadblocks around the area where the attack occurred in the largely ultra-Orthodox city.

The emergency agency said a manhunt had been launched, using helicopters and roadblocks, to find the vehicle that had fled the scene, without providing details on the alleged attackers.

Police said it appeared as if the attack had played out in several spots in one area.
