A 32-year-old man was moderately-to-severely wounded Monday morning from a stabbing attack near Petah Tikva’s Central Bus Station. He was rushed to Rabin Medical Center with injuries to upper body, with MDA staff tending to wounds on his neck. The attacker, a 21-year-old Palestinian from the town of Ar’ara who was illegally residing in Israel, was caught and taken into police custody.

The terrorist reportedly told police that he “did it for Al-Aqsa.” He was previously incarcerated between 2015 – 2016 for a nationalistically motivated attack.

The attacker reportedly attempted to escape through a side street, when he was spotted by a driver, who proceeded to ram his car into him…
