Tel Aviv Mayor Ron Huldai rushed to the scene of the shooting attack on Friday on the jam-packed Dizengoff Street and told assembled media there that "this appears to be a terrorist attack motivated by nationalism."

"What I know is that an individual came here and opened fire," the mayor said. "This appears to be motivated by nationalism. Tel Aviv has been a target in the past, and here it is rearing its ugly head again."

When asked about reports that the bar which was hit catered to the gay, lesbian, and transgender community, Huldai said: "This bar doesn't have any unique significance for me. It's a pub on Dizengoff Street. We need to stop being hysterical. There was a terrible event here, and we will get through it just as we have gotten through similar ones in the past."
