The incident comes a day after terrorist Kamel Abu Bakr, a 22-year-old Palestinian from Jenin affiliated with Islamic Jihad, opened fire in Tel Aviv on security guard Chen Amir, 42, after arousing suspicion, seriously wounding him. Amir was rushed to the hospital, but doctors could not save his life.

The second security guard, Amir's partner, who neutralized the terrorist, recounted the exchange of fire.
"My partner and I were traveling on Allenby Street and turned left toward Montefiore. We spotted someone suspicious standing at the corner. When he saw us approaching on our motorcycles, he avoided eye contact, which raised our suspicion. We circled around on the pavement to check on him, and as my partner parked the motorbike, he pulled out a gun from behind his back and started firing in his direction."
"As I drew my gun, he attempted to shoot at me as well, and I pursued him until he fell, and the gun was dislodged from his grasp. At that point, I stopped firing, stood over him with the weapon to prevent any movement, and called for security forces," he said.
