70-Year-Old Man Stabbed as Terror Strikes Israeli Town of Netanya

A 70-year-old Jewish-Israeli man was stabbed by a Palestinian assailant in Netanya.

The victim in Monday evening’s attack was taken to the hospital in serious condition. It was the second Palestinian stabbing attack in a central Israel city in the span of about three hours.

Police shot and apprehended the stabber, who was from the West Bank city of Tulkarem, located some 10 miles east of Netanya.

In the earlier attack, three Israelis, including an 80-year-old woman, were stabbed in Rishon LeZion. Two of the victims were in serious condition.
