Six people were injured in a terror attack in southern Tel Aviv overnight Sunday.

The attack occurred after an Arab stole a taxi, ran over a man and lightly injured him, then stabbed several other people at the corner of Abarbanel and Salame Streets in the city.

Magen David Adom reported that one person was stabbed in the head and stomach and was very seriously injured, two people were moderately injured and two others were lightly injured. They were all taken to Ichilov Hospital in Tel Aviv.

Voice of Israel radio reported that the attack took place near a popular Tel Aviv night club, and that the terrorist called out “Allah Akhbar” as he stabbed people. It was also reported that he refused to heed the officers’ calls from him to stop, a fact which strengthened officers’ belief that the man is a terrorist.

The terrorist was lightly injured as police took over the cab and apprehended him and was taken to the Wolfson Medical Center in Holon.

Police are investigating the incident, and a preliminary investigation has found that the terrorist came from the Shechem area. He initially made his way to Yafo, where he stole the cab and made his way towards southern Tel Aviv.
