The DJ who was playing at Tel Aviv's Haoman 17 early Monday morning told The Jerusalem Post
that he was informed about a terror attack outside the club as it happened, and was asked by management to keep playing.
An end of summer party was being held for high school children from around the country, and authorities wanted to avoid pandemonium and panic. Only after an hour, when the scene outside was neutralized, were the teenagers evacuated from the club.
Seven people were injured in the attack, after a terrorist from the West Bank carjacked a taxi and rammed it into a police road block, before going on a stabbing spree.
