Second Suspect Arrested in Driving Attack


Police have arrested a second suspect in Sunday morning's driving attack on Tel Aviv pedestrians. The second suspect, a resident of the Arab village of Arara, was traveling in tandem with the driver of the truck that conducted the attack in a separate vehicle, and was said to have assisted the driver.

A police spokesperson told Israel Radio that there was “little doubt” at this point that the incident Sunday morning, in the Hatikvah neighborhood of Tel Aviv, was a terror attack. One person was killed and 13 were injured in the attack. Two of them are in serious condition. The truck hit pedestrians and parked cars on the sidewalk of Bar Lev Street in the area over a distance of two kilometers, police said.
