Police said a resident of Nablus entered a taxi near the beginning of Salameh Street in south Tel Aviv early Monday morning, and carjacked the driver, stabbing him in the hand. He then drove for approximately a kilometer down Salameh Street towards the Hoaman 17 nightclub, which was filled with people in and around the building.

Border Police had set up a road block ahead of time at the entrance to the club on Abarbanel Street. The terrorist rammed the road block, and struck a number of people, including a Border policeman. "He then got out of the car, screamed Allahu akbar, and went on a knife attack," a police spokeswoman said.

The man stabbed five Border Policemen. One is seriously injured and two are moderately injured. The remainder are lightly injured.
