Three Israelis were killed and six others wounded in an ax attack east of Tel Aviv

In Jerusalem on Thursday, three Israelis were killed and six others wounded in an ax attack by a young man in the city of Elad, east of Tel Aviv.

It was learned that Magen David Adom teams are treating a number of seriously injured people

He stated that the Israeli police had asked residents of Elad not to leave their homes.

 The Israeli forces are chasing the perpetrator of the attack, believing that there is more than one perpetrator.

The Israeli Army Radio said that a suspect in the attack is being pursued in Elad and it appears that he used an ax in his attack, while Israeli media broadcast initial pictures of the scene of the operation.

The police explained that the operation was double and was carried out by shooting and the use of a white weapon.

Police deployed barricades along the arteries near the scene of the attack in Elad.

Israeli sources stated that the police used helicopters after they failed to quickly reach the perpetrators, and searched for a vehicle that was seen fleeing the scene, and there is a fear of carrying out another operation.

According to Hebrew media reports, the police neutralized one of the perpetrators, and that investigations are underway to find out the details of the operation and its motives
