Only hours after a young girl was stabbed and killed in her West Bank home, terror has struck the Israeli coastal town of Netanya. The Times of Israel's Tamar Pileggi reports that a man was seriously wounded and a woman lightly injured when they were attacked by a terrorist:
Two people were stabbed and wounded on Thursday evening in what police said was a terror attack outside a market in the coastal city of Netanya.
The Magen David Adom emergency response service said a man described as being around 40 years old sustained serious injures from multiple stab wounds to the upper body. The other victim, a 62-year-old woman, was lightly injured in the attack.
Both were taken to the city’s Laniado Hospital for treatment.
The assailant, identified by Israel Police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld as a Palestinian man from the West Bank city of Tulkarem, was shot dead at the scene by an armed civilian.
