Israel attack

Five killed in latest deadly attack in Israel

It happened in Bnei Brak, one of the country's most populous ultra-Orthodox Jewish areas.

The gunman was shot dead by police, a paramedic at the scene said.

Israel security forces were on high alert after attacks by Israeli Arabs last Tuesday and Sunday, which left six people dead.

Footage from the scene shows the gunman in dark clothing raising his automatic weapon and firing through the passenger window of a car at point-blank range.

One person was found dead in a vehicle and others on surrounding streets, the Jerusalem Post website says.

Israel attack: Two shot dead in Hadera

The gunmen - who police say were Arab Israeli citizens - started shooting at police on a main road in Hadera, to the north of Tel Aviv.

Police said the two gunmen were then shot dead by undercover officers.

Four other people were taken to hospital, and two others were treated at the site of the shooting.

So far, no group has said it carried out the attack.

Emergency medical responders said a man and a woman were killed in the attack.

The two gunmen were shot dead by other police officers dining at a restaurant close by, says Reuters news agency.
