The IDF shot two brothers of Tel Aviv terrorist Raad Hazem in Jenin's industrial zone on Sunday, according to Palestinian media. Neither was killed, and a chase in underway.

Security officials Sunday night reached out to Hazem's father and called on him to turn himself in.

Hazem shot people on Dizengoff Street in Tel Aviv on Thursday night, killing three people and injuring a dozen more before escaping. He was found after a manhunt that lasted hours. He fired at security forces, who shot back and killed him. 

"You will see the victory soon… God, liberate al-Aqsa Mosque from the occupiers,” his father said on Friday.

"Israeli special forces are chasing after my son and wife and shooting their vehicle in Jenin," he told Palestinian media on Sunday after the clash with the IDF.

In a Facebook post on Sunday, the IDF Spokesperson Unit released more information about Hazem.

According to the post, Hazem got into a conflict with other residents of Jenin over financial issues and was threatened with death before they shot at him.

After the shooting, Hazem bought a gun which he used to murder three men on Thursday.
