The four people killed after a pair of gunmen opened fire at an upscale market in Tel Aviv on Wednesday night have been identified by Israeli police.

They are:

  • Idan Ben Arieh, 42, from Ramat Gan, east of Tel Aviv
  • Ilana Naveh, 39, from Ramat Gan
  • Michael Faiga, 58, from southern Israel
  • Mila Meshayev, 32, from Rishon LeZion, just south of Tel Aviv

They died after two shooters, identified as Palestinians, opened fire at the Sarona Market  a popular food and shopping complex near the Israeli Defense Ministry — shattering what was a serene night with chaos and bloodshed.

In total, 13 people suffered gunshot wounds, according to Israel’s national emergency medical service. Four people, including one suspect, are still being treated at hospitals, Israeli police say.

“People were having coffee. I saw a birthday cake on one of the tables,” said Amir Ohana, a member of the Israeli Parliament who was at the market.

“And then you see the chairs upside down and glass shattered and blood all over.”

Surveillance footage from a nearby cafe showed chaos as panicked customers knocked over tables as they rushed to escape. Some crawled across the floor. Others carried children in their arms.

Rosenfeld said two terrorists were captured. One was shot by police, and the other surrendered
