While the exact circumstances of the attack were not immediately known, initial police assessments indicated nationalistic motivation.

Shortly after his arrest, the attacker was handed over to the Shin Bet and after a preliminary investigation, security officials concluded that the rampage was likely a terror attack.

Magen David Adom paramedics provided emergency treatment to the victims before evacuating them to Ichilov Hospital.

The wounded individuals included two men, a 50-year-old woman and a 70-year-old man.
