Two Israelis were wounded in a Palestinian stabbing attack in Netanya on Thursday evening, the Hebrew media reported.

In the two-pronged attack, which took place in the area of the open-air market in the coastal city, a 45-year-old man was left in critical condition and a 60-year-old woman in moderate condition, after the terrorist — from the Palestinian town of Tulkarm — first attacked the man in the street and then chased the woman into a hair salon and stabbed her there.

The terrorist was shot and killed by a member of Israel’s security forces, while his victims were treated at the scene by paramedics and evacuated to Netanya’s Laniado Hospital.
