Two security force members spotted the terrorist. They called on him to stop. He opened fire back at them. They returned fire and shot and killed the terrorist.

The terrorist was from Jenin.

Muezzins in Jenin are announcing the death of Raad Fatchi Hazm. The terrorist’s father is a senior official in Fatah and an officer in the PA security forces.

More than a 1000 security forces were directly involved with the search for the terrorist, including IDF special forces inside Tel Aviv, which was an unusual decision made due to the difficulty in finding the terrorist after the attack.
