IDF troops, along with Shabak forces, arrested overnight Sunday an Arab terrorist from Shechem who stabbed a Jewish man in Bnei Brak earlier Sunday night.
The 31 year old man was stabbed on Jabotinsky Street, next to the Dor Alon gas station near the Geha Junction in Bnei Brak. Police arrested eight suspects in the stabbing, rounding up suspects who were in the area.
Under interrogation, the suspects led police to the identity of the terrorist, who war rounded up later Sunday night. The terrorist admitted carrying out the attack, and was identified by witnesses as being the perpetrator.
The terrorist told security officials that he had attacked a group of hareidi pedestrians near the Geha Junction, stabbing one with a blunt instrument. He did this, he told investigators, “as revenge for what the IDF is doing to Palestinians.”
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, doctors said.
