Palestinian Car-Ramming Attack, 3rd Stabbing in Single Day
JNS.org – In the third stabbing attack in one day on Wednesday, a Palestinian terrorist from Hebron stabbed and wounded a man near a shopping mall in Petah Tikva, Israel. Additionally, a Palestinian driver rammed his vehicle into a Judea and Samaria checkpoint.
In the latest stabbing, a 30-year-old terrorist reportedly reached the entrance of the mall on Jabotinsky Street and stabbed the victim with a knife before he was apprehended. Paramedics treated the injured man for stab wounds in his upper body and then transported him to the Rabin Medical Center – Beilinson Campus in Petah Tikva.
“When we arrived at the scene, there was a big commotion on the side of the road, near a bus stop,” said Magen David Adom paramedic Itay Tillinger, the Jerusalem Post reported. “That’s where the 25-year-old was laying on the ground , fully conscious but suffering from stab wounds to the upper half of his body. We provided emergency medical treatment and quickly took him to the intensive care unit of the hospital.”
In the car-ramming, the Palestinian driver injured two Israeli police officers at the A’zaim checkpoint between Jerusalem and Ma’ale Adumim.
Meanwhile, a 15-year-old Palestinian terrorist was arrested in eastern Jerusalem after trying to stab Israeli police officers, according to Yedioth Ahronoth. These incidents took place after an Israeli Jewish man was moderately wounded Wednesday morning in a stabbing attack carried out by a female Palestinian terrorist in Jerusalem’s Old City, while an Arab terrorist stabbed an Israel Defense Forces soldier in the southern Israeli town of Kiryat Gat.
Further, a 38-year-old woman escaped at attempted lynching by Palestinian terrorists in the village of Tekoa in Judea and Samaria. The assailants reportedly smashed her car’s windows and attempted to forcibly remove her from her vehicle. She was able to flee.
“I woke up like every other morning, got up and left for my job in Jerusalem, and that’s when the attack took place,” said the woman who escaped, Rivi Lev Ohayon. “I managed to miraculously escape a lynching attempt, [but] I’m just traumatized.”
Seven cars were damaged in the latter attack from stones-throwing. Residents of Tekoa were later ordered to stay at home as a precaution.
