An Israeli from a Gush Etzion kibbutz was moderately wounded in a stabbing attack on Tuesday afternoon, while he was out jogging, Hebrew news sites reported.

Tomer Ditor, 28, a resident of Kibbutz Rosh Tzurim, began his run on the Patriarchs Road trail, near the community of Neve Daniel, when he was attacked from behind by a Palestinian terrorist.

With stab wounds to his upper body, Ditor staggered to the gate of the community, where he was able to call for help.

Magen David Adom and the Judea and Samaria Hatzalah volunteers administered first aid, before evacuating him to the Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem.

The assailant, whom Ditor told Israeli security forces he believed fled in the direction of Nahalink, a Palestinian village in the area, is still on the loose.
