A Palestinian terrorist is still on the loose after stabbing a security guard in Ma’ale Adumim. The victim, 48, is fighting for his life.

In the latest Palestinian terror attack, a 48-year-old security guard is listed in very serious condition after being stabbed multiple times just after 1 a.m. Friday morning at a shopping mall in Ma’ale Adumim, a city in Judea located seven kilometers (4.3 miles) east of Jerusalem.

At approximately 1:15 a.m., police received a report that a man was stabbed in the mall, Ynet reported.  Upon arrival, they found the victim lying on the ground with multiple to his upper body.

He was initially treated by Magen David Adom paramedics, who evacuated him to Hadassah Medical Center in the capital, where he arrived unconscious and on a respirator, according to Ynet.

“We are talking about a terrible event. We will do everything we can to get our hands on the perpetrator,” Nitzav Shlomi Michael, police commander of the Judea and Samaria district, stated, the report continued.

The guard appears to have been unarmed, prompting police to investigate the mall’s security policy.
