At least five people have been killed in what Israeli police officials are calling a terror attack.

A gunman on a motorcycle reportedly opened fire in a crowded area in central Israel in the second mass shooting this week. 

While the circumstances were initially unclear, there were two reported shootings at different locations near Tel Aviv, in the Israeli city of Ramat Gan and in nearby Bnei Brak.

There has been no immediate claim of responsibility for the attack. 

In Bnei Brak a police officer was seriously injured but the shooter, a Palestinian from the area of Jenin, was killed.

Another terrorist was arrested. 

Residents have been urged to stay indoors by police.

The number of Israelis killed in attacks over the past week has now risen to 11.

Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett called an emergency meeting of top security officials later Tuesday.

He also tweeted: 'Israel is facing a wave of murderous Arab terrorism.

'My heart goes out to the families who lost their loved ones tonight, and I pray for the well-being of the wounded.

'The security forces are working.

'We will fight terror with perseverance, stubbornness and an iron fist.

'They will not move us from here.

'We will win.' 

Israel's Magen David Adom ambulance service said there were five casualties but did not give their condition.

According to the television report, the gunman first shot towards apartment balconies in Bnei Brak, an ultra-Orthodox Jewish suburb of Tel Aviv, and then fired at people in the street.

Footage online shows a man dressed in black and pointing an assault rifle walking down a street, shooting at people on the street and in a car.

'I live on Hashneim Street in Bnei Brak and I was at home when I heard gunshots,' paramedic Menachem Englander said, according to a tweet posted by Magen David Adom.

'I immediately went out to the street and saw a terrorist pointing a weapon at me. By a miracle, his weapon jammed and he couldn't shoot.' 

Following the attack the official Twitter account of Israel tweeted:

'11 Israelis murdered in terrorist attacks in one week.

'11 Israelis who will never hug their mothers, fathers, siblings & children again.

'Our prayers are with the victims and their families during this time.

'May the memory of those killed be a blessing.'
