Two people were shot dead and six others wounded in a shooting at a crowded pub on 130 Dizengoff Street in Tel Aviv on Friday afternoon. It is currently unclear as to whether the motive for the shooting was nationalistic or criminal.
One of the individuals killed was named as Alon Bakal, 26. Bakal was the manager of the Simta bar at which the attack took place.
Two of the wounded have been hospitalized in serious condition. Two more were moderately wounded, one lightly-to-moderately wounded and another lightly wounded. The director of Ichilov, Ronni Gamzu, said the two who were seriously wounded are still in surgery and remain in life-threatening condition.
