After the Tel Aviv shootings, Israel faces three choices
Today’s shooting attack presents Israel with three choices. None of them is likely to lead to immediate relief from violence, but only one of them doesn’t risk following the terrorists’ playbook.
Two Palestinian gunmen opened fire in a Tel Aviv market on Wednesday afternoon, killing four and wounding six. The shooting is the latest in a series of attacks since last September that Israel’s ministry of foreign affairs has dubbed a “wave of terror”.
Although little is known about the attackers in this particular shooting, this wave of violence is different from those past because it is mostly not the work of Palestinian militant groups like Hamas, but rather of lone attackers.
