TEL AVIV (Reuters) -A motorist caused six casualties in a ramming in Tel Aviv on Tuesday after carrying out a suspected stabbing attack, an Israeli police spokesperson said, calling the incident terrorism.

The motorist was “neutralised” at the scene by a civilian first-responder, the spokesperson told Israel’s Army Radio.

Israel has been on alert for Palestinian attacks a day after launching a major military operation in the West Bank city of Jenin.
