Eight people have been arrested as supects in a stabbing that took place in Bnei Brak, near Tel Aviv, Sunday evening. The background for the attack is suspected to be nationalistic.

A man aged 31 was stabbed on Jabotinsky Street, next to the Dor Alon gas station.

Medics and paramedics from Magen David Adom emergency services evacuated the victim to Beilinson Hospital. He was in moderate condition, with stab wounds in the upper body.

An initial investigation by police determined that an Arab man pounced on a group of hareidim near the Geha bridge, stabbing one of them with a sharp object. The police set up roadblocks throughout the area and arrested eight suspects.
