Police: Terrorist Apparently Acted Alone


Tel Aviv police commander Aharon Eksol said, Monday morning, that a preliminary investigation indicates that the Shechem resident who carried out the terror attack near Tel Aviv's Ha'oman 17 night club apparently acted alone. Interviewed by Kol Yisrael government radio, Eksol stressed that the indication is preliminary and that additional details are probable.

Eksol said the roadblock where police stopped the terrorist was set up because more than 1,000 were expected at the club for an end-of vacation party and not because of a specific threat. Police will be on alert Monday evening because of Eid-al-Fitr, the Muslim celebration marking the end of the holy month of Ramadan.
