Four people – one of them a 13-year-old girl, were stabbed by a Palestinian teen in the southern Israeli city of Kiryat Gat tonight, Ynet reported.
Also injured in the attack were a 51-year-old man and two women, one aged 44 and the other 56. All four victims are reportedly hospitalized in moderate condition.
The attacker, an illegal worker from Hebron in the West Bank, fled the scene and successfully eluded a massive police manhunt that involved 250 officers – until he was given up by several of his friends. When arrested, the teen was still carrying a bloody knife. As he was led away from the scene of the arrest, dozens of policemen had to hold back a crowd of angry Jewish Israelis who wanted to lynch him. Also arrested were two Palestinian youth believed to be accomplices.
Near the scene of the attack, a Bedouin man was also injured after a mob of Jewish Israelis mistook him for the attacker, tied his hands and then beat him. He was transported to Brazilai Hospital in Ashkelon and is reportedly in light condition.
No Jews involved in the mob attack were arrested. But during the initial police search for the terrorist, 10 other illegal Palestinian workers were arrested. None had any connection to the attack.
