Initial reports revealed that the attacker was in Israel legally, working for a nearby restaurant.

  

The wounded were evacuated to Sourasky Medical Center in central Tel Aviv.

 

Hamas released a statement praising the attack, connecting it to the fact that Israel still holds the bodies of several recent Palestinian attackers who were killed by security forces.
