Two people were killed on Thursday after a gunman opened fire in central Tel Aviv, in the latest in a string of deadly terror attacks across Israel.

At least eight others were wounded.

Police officials said the assailant is on the run, and massive forces are looking for him.

Contrary to prior reports about several gunmen, police suspect the attack was carried out by a single shooter.

The shooting took place along several spots along Dizengoff Street, one of Tel Aviv’s busiest streets.

Israeli police and the Tel Aviv municipality called on residents to remain in their homes and stay away from their windows as the remaining suspects are being hunted down.

Prime Minister Naftali Bennett was receiving updates on the situation at the Israeli military’s headquarters, also in Tel Aviv.

Israel has faced a wave of terror attacks over the past month. On March 22, four Israelis were killed in a stabbing attack in Be’er Sheva. On March 27, two border police officers were killed in a shooting attack in Hadera. On March 30, two Israeli civillians, two Ukrainian nationals and a police officer were killed in a shooting attack in Bnei Brak.

On Tuesday, Bennett said that Israel has thwarted over 15 terror attacks over the past two weeks, calling the wave of attacks that have killed 11 people “a wake-up call.”

In 2016, a shooting attack took place at a pub on Dizengoff Street, killing two and wounding several. The Israeli Arab suspected assailant was killed by police a few days later.
