Massive manhunt for new terrorist in Herzliya

A large force of police and border police officers are conducting an extensive search this morning for a resident of eastern Jerusalem who reportedly told his family that he intends to perpetrate a terror attack in Herzliya.



Early reports indicate that the potential terrorist broke through a police barrier near Jerusalem and drove in the direction to Tel Aviv. His abandoned vehicle was found in Herzliya.

Police forces are scouring the city and the surrounding area, in conjunction with the search for Nashat Melhem, who was behind last Friday’s fatal shooting in Tel Aviv. Particular emphasis is being placed on schools and kindergartens.
