    A suspected terror attack occurred on Wednesday afternoon when a 39-year-old Chareidi avreich was stabbed to death by an Arab in Petach Tikvah.

    Paramedics arrived at the scene and found the man lying on the sidewalk unconscious. They provided emergency medical treatment and evacuated him to Beilinson Hospital in Petach Tikvah in critical condition.

    “We found the victim lying next to a bus with no pulse and not breathing with multiple stab wounds to his upper torso,” said Chesky Farkash, an MDA paramedic. “We carried out resuscitation efforts and attempted to stop the bleeding and transferred him to the hospital in an MDA intensive care vehicle as he was in critical condition.”

    Unfortunately, the man’s death was confirmed a short while later. According to a Kikar H’Shabbos report, the victim is a resident of Petach Tikvah, an avreich who learned in a kollel in Kfar Saba, a father of four.

    “I was at the scene following the stabbing and I saw an Israeli chasing the stabber,” a Petach Tikvah resident told Maariv. “The Israeli was shouting ‘terrorist’ and knocked him down to the ground. He didn’t succeed in running far and the police came and arrested him.”

    “He was the hero of the day. The stabber, of Arab appearance, had a knife the size of a sword.”

    A witness of the scene told Channel 13 News: “I saw a knife, like a butcher knife. He stabbed the man around five-six times. I saw lots and lots of blood. We quickly stopped the car. People ran and tried to stop him.”

    Although initial police reports said that the suspect was an illegal Palestinian infiltrator, the Shin Bet later stated that he had a work permit. Palestinians undergo significant security and background checks before receiving work permits.

    The suspect, a 46-year-old Palestinian married father of six children from a town near Shechem, was detained by police officers at the scene and transferred to the Shin Bet for interrogation.
