Zionist Union head Isaac Herzog praised the father of the gunman suspected of carrying out the shooting attack on Tel Aviv’s Dizengoff Street on Friday.

Speaking at a town hall meeting in Tel Aviv, the opposition leader said that the father “did the right thing” in notifying authorities that it was his son who appeared on closed-circuit footage that captured the moments leading up to the gruesome attack.

“Since the incident, a day has passed and the despicable murderer has yet to be caught,” Herzog said. “His father, who gave the police and the other security services information about his identity, did the right thing.”
