Eight Israelis, including five policemen, were injured early Monday when a Palestinian crashed a stolen taxi into a group of people in central Tel Aviv then attacked them and passers-by with a knife, a police spokeswoman said.
According to Israeli reports, the attacker was a young Palestinian from the West Bank city of Nablus. He stole a taxi in Tel Aviv, slightly injuring the driver before throwing him out of the car, spokeswoman Louba Samri told AFP.
The assailant got out of the car and attacked passers-by and the guards wounding four people, Samri said. Two were severely wounded.
