Israeli paramedics say at least five people were killed Tuesday in a shooting in the central city of Bnei Brak, east of Tel Aviv. The circumstance of the incident was not immediately clear. The shooting took place two days after a shooting in the city of Hadera that left two police officers dead, and a week after a stabbing in the southern city of Beersheba in which four people were killed.

The attacks have raised concerns that there could be further violence. Police said Tuesday’s shooting took place at two locations, apparently by a gunman riding a motorcycle.

The militant Islamic State group claimed responsibility for both attacks in the past week, in which the assailants were killed.

Israeli security services raided the homes of at least 12 Arab citizens and arrested two suspected of having ties to the Islamic State group in a crackdown sparked by recent deadly attacks, authorities said Tuesday.

Hours before the raid, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett said the recent assaults inside Israel, which killed six people, marked a “new situation” that required stepped-up security measures.
