Terror in Tel Aviv: Hamas Fighter Stabs Israeli Soldier at Train Station (Video)
A young Israeli soldier was critically injured in a knife attack by a Hamas terrorist on Monday.
The soldier was waiting at a bus stop when Palestinian Nur al-Din stabbed him numerous times.
An Israeli soldier was stabbed and critically wounded in a terror attack on Monday morning in Tel Aviv, according to the Israel Police.
Police apprehended the suspect shortly afterwards and said the assailant attempted to steal the soldier’s gun, but failed.
The stabbing took place at the city’s southern HaHaganah train station on Levinsky Street.
The soldier received first aid at the scene, and was then transported to nearby Tel Hashomer Hospital. He is in critical condition and is currently undergoing surgery. A man in his 50s chased down the attacker, and was wounded in the process.
The soldier sustained “numerous stabbing wounds, too many to count,” Magen David Adom paramedic Nachum Bernstein told the Tatzpit News Agency.
Bernstein was among the first on the scene, and provided first aid to the soldier before the victim was evacuated to the hospital.
The suspect, Nur al-Din, 18, is a resident of the Askar refugee camp, and was in Israel illegally, according to police.
Palestinian sources said al-Din was a Hamas member, Israel Radio said.
The soldier was severely injured.
