An Arab terrorist stabbed an Israeli man at a gas station outside the capital late Wednesday night. The victim was moderately wounded, and the assailant was caught.
A man in his 30s was stabbed at around 11 pm Wednesday night at a gas station in Givat Ze’ev, five kilometers northwest of Jerusalem.
The terrorist was caught and arrested.
The victim was treated by Magen David Adom (MDA) paramedics on the spot and then evacuated to Shaare Zedek hospital in Jerusalem in serious condition, but fully conscious. Shortly thereafter, his situation was described as moderate.
According to paramedic Dudi Gur, the victim suffered a number of stab wounds.
“When we arrived at the scene we saw a 36-year-old man lying on the ground at a gas station fully conscious, but who had sustained a number of stab wounds to his upper body,” Gur said. “We immediately put him in the ambulance and performed emergency treatment while we evacuated him to the hospital. We also provided first aid to stop the bleeding. His situation was moderate-to-serious.”
Several hours earlier, a stabbing attack was thwarted at the Qalandiya checkpoint, between Jerusalem and Ramallah, when a Palestinian terrorist was caught by security.
On Monday, Palestinian terrorists stabbed 24-year-old Shlomit Krigman to death and wounded another woman in Beit Horon in the Binyamin region.
A total of 29 victims have died and close to 300 wounded – at least 25 seriously – since the beginning of the current wave of Palestinian terror, which began mid-September.
