A Palestinian terrorist stabbed four Israelis in an attack in Tel Aviv.
A Palestinian terrorist stabbed and wounded four Israelis in an attack in a Tel Aviv hotel on Sunday.
The four victims, three men and a woman, sustained light wounds and were evacuated to a hospital for treatment. One of the victims is in his 70s.
The terrorist, 18, hails from the Judea and Samaria region. He was arrested by police and turned over to the custody of the Shin Bet security service for questioning.
Yossi Eckler a volunteer EMT with United Hatzalah who was the first responder on the scene, said that when he arrived at the site of the attack, he found two men and one woman lightly injured. They were suffering from wounds in the upper body.
“While treating them together with other EMTS from the ambucycle unit who arrived after me, we were told of another wounded man outside of the hotel. EMTs promptly ran to treat him as well,” he said.
Initially undecided, police have now confirmed that the incident was an act of terror.
This stabbing is the latest in a long series of Palestinian terror attacks, which have plagued Israelis over the course of more than a year, claiming the lives of 47 victims and wounding over 650.
