Israeli Special Forces were entrusted with putting a halt to the assaults and treating casualties.
Israel sustained significant damage due to recent assaults in Beersheba, Hadera, and Tel Aviv by lone Palestinians: This includes the media and general public being exposed to the identities of personnel of Israeli Special Forces teams. Immediately after the Tel Aviv assault, a number of these units raced to the area, handing the Palestinian resistance forces a free present. The army and intelligence services are working feverishly to repair the damage. Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said that his administration would continue constructing illegal settlements in the occupied West Bank.
Israeli media experts have blasted television networks and reporters assigned to cover the Tel Aviv incident. Everyone watching could see that the journalists were competing to show the most compelling and frightening images imaginable and close-ups of Special Forces looking for the assailant in a state of panic. The aftermath of Tel Aviv’s Dizengoff Street assault exposed authorities’ disorganized response, extending public fear and transforming a tactical operation into a strategic win. Rather than clarifying that the assailant may be moving from home to house, viewers were forced to sit through lengthy, tiresome, and pointless hours of film of troops aiming their rifles at locked staircase doors. The media exploited security officers’ interpretative and psychological deficiencies, undermining the Israeli public’s mental fortitude.
