First Tel Aviv massacre victim named

The four victims of Wednesday night's shooting attack in central Tel Aviv have been named as 41-year-old Ido Ben-Ari of Ramat Gan; Ilana Naveh, 39, of Tel Aviv; Michael Feige, 58, of Ben Gurion College; and 32-year-old Milah Misheiv of Rishon Letzion.

Ben-Ari's wife was with him at the time of the attack, which took place in the busy Sarona Market; she is currently hospitalized in moderate condition after suffering gunshot wounds herself.

An additional three people were seriously injured in the attack, which was carried out by two cousins from the Palestinian village of Yatta, next to Hevron. Overnight, officials at Ichilov Hospital say the victims' conditions have improved considerably, and they are out of danger and stable.

One of the terrorists was arrested immediately after the attack, while the second one was shot and captured alive by police after a brief chase.

Security guards from the nearby Israel Broadcasting Authority offices prevented a far greater tragedy by quickly rushing to the site to neutralize the terrorists.

Meanwhile, the IDF has sealed off Yatta and is conducting arrests in response to the deadly attack.
