It has been reported that the shootings took place in two or three different areas in Bnei Brak and Ramat Gan.
The Times of Israel reported that police officials stated that a man on a motorcycle had opened fire on passersby.
This attack has come just days after two similar attacks by Palestinian citizens of Israel in Beersheba and Hadera, which left a total of 6 people dead, including two police officers.
Tensions have been particularly high in recent weeks in the run up to the first anniversary of Israel's 11-day offensive on Gaza.
