An 18-year-old girl was severely injured today (Friday) in a stabbing attack in the city of Ramla.

Magen David Adom (MDA) teams provided her with first aid at the scene and evacuated her to Assaf Harofeh Hospital with a stab wound on her upper body. The terrorist who carried out the stabbing was eliminated by an armed civilian a short while later. A helicopter is searching the area due to concerns of additional terrorists.

According to one report, the injured woman managed to say that an Arab stabbed her before she lost consciousness.

MDA Medicycle Unit EMT Mendy Amitai recounted: "We arrived rapidly at the scene and found an 18-year-old conscious female with a stab wound to her upper body. We dressed the injury and stopped the bleeding, and she was evacuated in an MDA MICU to the hospital, conscious and in serious condition."

The police stated, "Officers from the Ramla Station have begun an investigation into the circumstances of a stabbing incident in Ramla. From initial reports at the scene, there was only one stabbing victim and the stabber was neutralized. Large police forces are on their way to the scene. The background and circumstances are under investigation. More details to follow."

National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir gave an address at the scene of the attack: "I have spoken with the heroic citizen who eliminated the terrorist. He prevented a greater tragedy that would have meant people wounded and killed. Arming civilians saves lives."
