After a four-hour search for the terrorist who stabbed five people in Kiryat Gat on Saturday, police captured the assailant, who literally still had blood on his hands.
Early Saturday evening, a terrorist stabbed five people outside a soccer stadium in the southern Israeli city of Kiryat Gat. The victims include a 13-year-old girl, a 43-year-old man, a 44-year-old woman, a 51-year-old man and a 58-year-old woman.
The terrorist, a Palestinian teenager from the Hebron area, was found hiding in the yard of a local home after an intense, four-hour search. He was still holding the blood-drenched knife.
The victims are being treated at Barzilai hospital in Ashkelon and are reportedly in stable condition. The 13-year-old, who was stabbed in the chest, is being treated in a pediatric emergency ward.
Five Israelis were murdered on Thursday by terrorists in two separate incidents – one in Tel Aviv and the other in Gush Etzion – both committed by Palestinians from the Hebron area, as were the majority of attacks not only during the current wave of terror, which began in September, but also in 2014. Following Thursday’s attacks, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu held a security consultation with IDF, Israel Police and Shin Bet (Israel’s Security Agency) officers and officials.
Among the issues discussed was a course of action in the Hebron area as well as steps against Israelis who illegally employ or aid Palestinians in Israel, thus exposing citizens to threat of terror. The Palestinian terrorist who stabbed five Israelis on Saturday was reportedly an illegal employee.
