Monday morning's terror attack was coordinated to strike large youth party being held in the area, Israel Radio said.

Seven people were injured in a terror attack in south Tel Aviv. Police said that a resident of Nablus, in his 20s, entered a taxi near the beginning of Salameh Street in south Tel Aviv, and carjacked the driver, stabbing him in the hand, according to police. 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 civilians and a Border Policeman.

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