Israeli Who Stabbed Fellow Jew Charged With Attempted Murder

A man who stabbed a fellow Jewish-Israeli in a suburban Haifa parking lot after mistaking him for an Arab was charged with attempted murder.

Shlomo Pinto, of Kiryat Ata, was charged Sunday in Haifa District Court for attempted murder and possession of a knife with racist intent, Haaretz reported.

Pinto reportedly confessed to the attack in an IKEA parking lot. His victim had moderate injuries from stab wounds to his upper body.

A psychiatric evaluation found Pinto fit to stand trial, but his attorney told Haaretz that he suffers from a number of psychological issues that should also be evaluated.

Several Palestinian attacks on Israelis took place the day of the Pinto incident, including in the central Israeli city of Raanana.
