At least two people were killed and eight injured following a gun-attack by an unidentified man at a bar in Tel Aviv on Friday afternoon.

The incident took place at the crowded bar in Dizengoff Street of central Tel Aviv. The condition of two of the injured is said to be critical.

The suspect, who is believed to be a young man in possession of a rifle, is still at large, said reports. A massive search for the attacker is being carried out by Israeli forces.

Though the motive behind the attack is not clear, it "appears to be a terrorist attack motivated by nationalism", city mayor Ron Huldai told the Jerusalem Post.

Tel Aviv was last under attack on 2 November, when two people were killed in a stabbing attack.
