JERUSALEM (JTA) — Four Israelis were injured, including one critically, in a stabbing attack at a kibbutz in northern Israel.
A 19-year-old woman was reported to have damage to multiple organs as a result of the attack on Sunday at Gan Shmuel, near Hadera. Two of the victims were moderately wounded, and a 45-year-old man was lightly injured.
The suspected assailant was caught by police, who identified him as a 20-year-old Arab-Israeli originally from the northern Arab town of Umm al-Fahm, located 12 miles from the scene of the attack.
The Shin Bet named the suspect as Alaa Raed Ahmad Ziwad. Ziwad received Israeli citizenship through his father’s family unification.
Also Sunday, two Israelis were injured in rock-throwing attacks in the West Bank.
