A 48-year-old resident of Bat Yam to the south of Tel Aviv was stabbed and lightly wounded on Wednesday morning on Henkin Street in Holon, located just east of Bat Yam.

Suspicions are growing among the police that the incident was a terrorist attack, although they have yet to rule out the possibility that it was criminal and currently all angles are being investigated.

The victim said that he was walking on the street when he was attacked by an anonymous assailant who pounced on him and stabbed him.

The stabber fled the scene and large forces from the Tel Aviv district police are currently working to track him down.
