Two killed by ‘smiling’ gunman who opened fire in Tel Aviv bar

A gunman has killed two and seriously wounded at least five others after spraying bullets into a packed bar in central Tel Aviv.

Security forces rushed to the scene of the attack after the shooter fled the scene although it is now understood that they have been detained.

It is not immediately clear what motivated the shooting, which initial reports say happened at a downtown sushi bar.

Update: Report – Copy of Koran found in Tel Aviv gunman’s backpack h/t AE

    now I truly wonder what “Motivated the shootings”? I can understand the stupid left saying this in the Diaspora… but in Israel??? SMH

    Don’t they all smile as they smite for Allah?

    The shooter’s backpack was recovered at the scene and it contained a Koran. So, it either has something to do with Islam or this guy really hates sushi.

    • I’m goin with Sushi.

        They’d run out of seaweed?

  • Hey CSIS, are you paying attention? A “smiling” gunman doesn’t sound like someone with a “personality disorder” to me — no signs of depression or mental illness.

      No signs of mental illness? I beg to differ. Was he, or wasn’t he a Muslim.

    “smiling”? Try “evil grin” instead.
