Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch on Monday afternoon visited the scene of the terror attack in south Tel Aviv which left eight injured and said that the police reaction prevented a huge tragedy that would have badly affected a number of children.

Aharonovitch said that this kind of attack carried out by a lone terrorist is a well known scenario but is hard to forecast. Therefore, Aharonovitch said, it is important to prepare for every possible outcome in situations like this.

"The main message of the attack is that the police acted as a security shield and prevented teenagers from being hurt," he continued.
