Israeli paramedics say at least five people were killed in a shooting in the central town of Bnei Brak, east of Tel Aviv, on Tuesday.
The circumstances of the incident were not immediately clear. The shooting came two days after a shootout in the town of Hadera that left two police officers dead, and a week after a stabbing attack in the southern city of Beersheba in which four people were killed .
The attacks raised fears of further violence.
Police said Tuesday’s shooting took place at two locations, apparently by a gunman on a motorcycle.
Islamic State claimed responsibility for two attacks last week, in which the attackers were killed.
