MDA Chief: TA Attack Could Have Been Much Worse


Magen David Adom chief Eli Been said Monday that the toll in Sunday night's terror attack in Tel Aviv could have been far worse. “If the terrorist had attempted to enter one of the clubs in the with many young people who were celebrating the end of summer vacation, the results would have been much worse. There is no doubt that the quick response by MDA, which was on patrol in the area, prevented a worse attack.”

Eight people were injured in a terror attack in southern Tel Aviv on Sunday night, when an Arab terrorist stole a taxi, ran over a man and lightly injured him, then stabbed several other people at the corner of Abarbanel and Salame Streets in the city.
