According to Israel Police Commissioner Yaakov Shabtai, the incident occurred when two Tel Aviv municipal patrol bikers attempted to stop the suspect, leading him to draw a pistol and shoot one of the officers.
After the Palestinian gunman shot the Israeli patrolman in Tel Aviv, the second patrolman responded by using his own firearm to chase and shoot the attacker. Both the injured officer and the gunman were rushed to Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Center - Ichilov.
The hospital initially announced that the gunman had died and later confirmed the officer's death. The fallen officer has been identified as Chen Amir, 42, a married father of three.
Amir was found unconscious and without a pulse or breathing by emergency medical technicians at the scene of the shooting, according to the Magen David Adom (MDA) rescue service. They transported him to the hospital using a mobile intensive care unit.
According to Commissioner Shabtai and the Israel Police spokesperson's unit, the suspect in the shooting incident is 27 years old. However, they have not disclosed his name to the public yet.
The US State Department classified the incident in Tel Aviv as "a terror attack," along with another attack that occurred on Saturday in the occupied West Bank, where an Israeli settler targeted a Palestinian. The State Department issued a statement on Twitter, but the identity of the spokesperson, referred to as "X," was not mentioned in the provided information.
We strongly condemn today’s terrorist attack in Tel Aviv that killed one and wounded two others - as well as other recent terrorist attacks against Israelis. We express our deepest condolences to the victims’ families and call for an end to these acts of violence and incitement to violence,violence.- The statement by the State Department

1 killed, 3 injured in Tel Aviv attack

The attack in Tel Aviv received praise from Palestinian militant groups Hamas and Islamic Jihad, who considered it a normal response to settler attacks and a defense of the holy sites. Although neither group explicitly claimed responsibility for the incident, their statements expressed support for the act.
The attack in Tel Aviv occurred one day after a settler rampage in the occupied West Bank, which resulted in the death of one Palestinian. This incident further exacerbated the ongoing cycle of violence that has engulfed the region for the past year and a half.
Nineteen-year-old Palestinian Qusai Jamal Maatan lost his life due to an incident involving Israeli settlers in the Palestinian village of Burqa in the West Bank. Israeli police responded by arresting two Israeli settlers in connection with the violent incident.
During one of their routine pre-dawn raids into the occupied West Bank, Israeli soldiers shot and killed 18-year-old Mahmoud Abu Sa'an, a young Palestinian, earlier on Friday.

Conclusion

Yair Lapid, an opposition leader in the Israeli parliament, expressed concern over the impact of violent settler attacks in the West Bank, stating that such actions endanger other settlers, the majority of whom he described as "law-abiding civilians."
