Israel asks for PA’s help to find Tel Aviv shooter

PNN/ Jerusalem/

Israeli Occupation Authorities on Monday officially asked the Palestinian Authority to “share any intelligence” that could lead to the capture of the alleged Palestinian Tel Aviv shooter.

On Friday, a gunman fired shots into crowded pub on Dizengoff street in Tel Aviv this, killing two Israelis and wounding five others. The alleged suspect was identified as Nash’at Milhem (29) from Wadi Ara inside the Israeli-occupied green line.

Israel made the appeal to the PA claiming that Milhem might be seeking shelter in the occupied West Bank.

Following the attack on Saturday, the suspect’s father, a “police volunteer” called the Israeli police, saying that he was shocked when he saw his son in the footage, and that his son suffered a mental illness.

The Israeli manhunt for the alleged suspect has been going on for four days now, without any leads to his place.

According to the Israeli Jpost, two brothers of the suspect have been arrested by IOF for “suspicion.” Israeli media added that Milhem was imprisoned for five years for a 2007 alleged attack on a soldier.
