Israelske etterforskere mener at attentatmannen i Dizengoff Street, som fortsatt er på frifot, er en israelsk araber, skriver Jerusalem Post:
The suspect is from the region of Wadi Ara, not far from the northern town of Haifa. Channel 10 reported on Friday that the suspect’s father recognized his son in the closed-circuit television footage that emerged shortly after the rampage and notified authorities.
Vedkommende var trolig IS-sympatisør:
Israeli security officials believe that the suspect, whose identity was known to authorities prior to the incident, was operating under the influence of Islamic State-sanctioned ideology similar to the deadly attacks perpetrated in Paris last year.
Livet og virksomhetene i den aktuelle gaten i den israelske metropolen symboliserer akkurat den moderne og sorgløse livsførselen som Paris-terroristene også rammet.
