Four people have been injured in a combined car attack and terrorist stabbing Sunday at a bus station near Gan Shmuel on Highway 65 in northern Israel, between Hadera and Afula.
A 19-year-old female soldier is in moderate to serious condition with wounds to the upper body. A 14-year-old girl was stabbed, and is in moderate condition, and two men, aged 45 and 20, are in light condition.
The terrorist ran over one of the victims and then emerged from his car and stabbed his other victims.
The stabber was reportedly caught by police. He is aged about 20 and is a resident of Umm El Fahm, and an Israeli citizen.
According to some reports, he had an accomplice who managed to escape, and a manhunt is on. It was initially reported that a gun was also reportedly stolen from the scene of the terror crime, and that the fugitive may be armed, but this report has been discounted.
Haled Morai, a Magen David Adom paramedic, and Yehuda Haim, an emergency medic, were among the first responders.
“When we arrived on the scene we saw a young woman aged about 19 lying unconscious in the roadside ditch and suffering from multi-system injuries,” they said. “We gave her lifesaving first aid including resuscitation, bandaging and fluids and quickly evacuated her to Rambam Hospital.”
