Staff at Rehovot's Kaplan Hospital say the 43-year-old stabbing victim is fighting for his life after being severely injured on Wednesday morning in a stabbing attack.

The attack occurred when a Palestinian Arab terrorist entered a supermarket in the central city of Yavneh and stabbed a supermarket worker.

In the video, the stabber can be seen innocuously walking into the supermarket, then grabbing a knife which had been hiding under his shirt. He ran towards a supermarket worker who happened to be standing near him, and stabbed his victim several times, despite the worker's attempts to defend himself.

Magen David Adom personnel who arrived at the scene administered first aid and transferred the victim to Kaplan Hospital in unstable condition. In the video taken at the supermarket, a puddle of blood can be seen on the floor.

Later footage shows civilians surrounding the terrorist, not allowing him to move and searching for the terrorist's knife.

MDA paramedic Itzik Yom Tov, who arrived at the scene, said, "When I arrived at the scene they showed me inside. I saw a man in his 40s laying conscious on the floor, with stab wounds on his upper body. We administered lifesaving medical treatment, bandaged his wounds and stopped the bleeding. We transferred the victim to Kaplan Hospital in severe condition."
