A middle-aged religious Jewish man who was stabbed by a Palestinian terrorist demonstrated great courage by continuing to fight back during the attack and eliminating the assailant.
An Israeli civilian, wounded in a stabbing attack in Petah Tikvah Tuesday afternoon while on his way inside a store, managed not only to pull the knife out of his neck during the assault, but also to fight back.
After releasing the knife, the victim, a visibly religious Jew of about 40 years of age, stabbed and killed the terrorist with the help of the store owner.
According to an eyewitness who described the scene to Walla News, “the haredi [ultra-orthdox Jewish] man came out of the store with a knife stuck in his neck and yelled, ‘I got stabbed.’ He then pulled out the knife, went back inside the store and stabbed the man. There was a big tumult. When I finally entered the store I saw the attacker lying in a pool of blood.”
The victim was transferred to Beilinson hospital in moderate condition.
