Pictures have been released of the Tel Aviv shooter's hideout in his home town of Arara, where he took refuge inside of building as he hid from police.

Shin Bet domestic intelligence agents together with the Border Police's Counter-Terrorism Unit officers shot and killed terrorist Nashat Milhem in his hometown of Arara in northern Israel on Friday, thus ending a days-long pursuit of the terrorist behind three murders in Tel Aviv.

Milhem was found in his hideout and was discovered after the Shin Bet received information on his location on Friday, following an intensive Shin Bet - Israel Police investigation that included many undercover and overt operations to track him down.

The shooter tried to escape when he noticed security in the area, and opened fire at security forces using the Spectre M4 Falcon sub-machine gun in his possession, which he also used to murder his victims in Tel Aviv the previous week, the Shin Bet stated.

The family has erected a mourner's tent in his memory.
