The Wolfson Medical Center in Tel Aviv has confirmed that the murdered man was a 29-year-old American tourist. Officials at Tel Aviv’s Ichilov Hospital also revealed that one victim is a pregnant woman and another an Israeli Arab, Times of Israel reports.
The attacker stabbed his victims at three different locations within Jaffa in an assault lasting 20 minutes. He was shot dead by the police and later identified as a 21-year-old man from a West Bank Palestinian refugee camp in Qalqiliya, according to the Times of Israel.
The attack came as the US Vice President Joe Biden, who has arrived in Israel for a two-day visit, was attending an event at the Peres Peace Center, just a 15-minute walk from the scene. Sources from Biden’s delegation told the Jerusalem Post that, though the delegation was aware of the incident, it had not influenced the vice president’s schedule.
