JERUSALEM, April 8 — A Palestinian who opened fire in a Tel Aviv bar, killing two people, was shot and killed by Israeli security forces on Friday after an hours-long manhunt through the city.

The Israeli officers located the man hiding near a mosque in Jaffa, just south of Tel Aviv, Israel’s Shin Bet security agency said. During an exchange of fire, the attacker, identified as a Palestinian from the occupied West Bank, was killed, Shin Bet said.

Late on Thursday, at the start of the weekend in Israel, the attacker had entered a pub on a main street of Tel Aviv and opened fire, killing two people and seriously wounding three others before fleeing the scene.
