breaking,

Officials said a 30-year-old man died and several others were injured in the incident.

At least one person has been killed and several others injured in a suspected attack in Israel’s commercial hub of Tel Aviv.

The exact nature of the attack was not immediately known, but Israel’s Foreign Ministry described it as a “terrorist attack,” a term Israeli officials use for attacks by Palestinians.

A car plowed into people near a popular beach park on Friday, police said.

Israel’s rescue service said a 30-year-old man had been killed and did not provide details of the foreign tourists’ nationalities.

Three of the injured, including a 17-year-old, suffered moderate injuries, while two others were rescued with minor injuries, the rescue service added.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office said Israel had built up police and military reserves after the Tel Aviv attack.

Earlier on Friday, two British-Israeli sisters, aged 16 and 20, were killed and their mother critically wounded in a shooting attack in the occupied West Bank.

Neither attack was immediately claimed.

Tensions have risen after Israeli forces entered the al-Aqsa mosque compound in occupied East Jerusalem in successive days this week and fired bombs at Palestinians gathering for Ramadan prayers.

On Thursday night, Israeli airstrikes hit Palestinian targets in Lebanon and Gaza, followed by gunfire in the occupied West Bank that killed two Israelis.
