(JNS) At least one terrorist opened fire on Thursday night in the heart of Tel Aviv on Dizengoff Street in a crowded area with restaurants and bars.

Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Centers/Ichilov Hospital said 10 people are being treated, and at least four have already been operated on, according to Israeli media.

“We saw 6 patients lying on the sidewalk. We immediately began treatment, including bleeding control and bandaging. 2 were unconscious and underwent resuscitation & 4 others were conscious,” Magen David Adom paramedic Yisrael Weingarten said in a statement on Twitter.

It is the latest in several deadly terrorist attacks perpetrated by Palestinians in recent weeks that have resulted in the deaths of 11 people.

Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett is closely following the situation from military headquarters in Tel Aviv.

Police told people to avoid the area and stay in their homes as Ynet reported that a search is underway for a possible second gunman.

Posts on Twitter show Palestinians celebrating the attack.
