November 21, 2015  

First responders hurried to Kiryat Gat’s King David Street after receiving a report of a stabbing attack.

Early information suggests that four people are wounded, including a 13-year-old girl. The girl and two others are lightly- to moderately wounded, while the fourth is moderately wounded.

Ynet reports that the perpetrator may currently be trapped in an apartment building.

Police have released a statement, reading: “Suspected stabbing attack in Kiryat Gat. A few minutes ago police received a report of a suspect stabbing people on King David Street in Kiryat Gat, near the Dor Alon gas station. Police forces at the scene are searching the area for the perpetrator. It appears there are a number of victims. At this time it is too early to say if the incident was criminal or terror.”

During their searches, security forces have found and arrested about 10 illegal squatters, most of whom are Eritreans.

David Overland, a United Hatzalah volunteer, said, “When we arrived at the scene I came across a Haredi man who had been stabbed in the upper body and his tzitzit were stained with blood. Together with other volunteers from United Hatzalah’s motorcycle unit, I provided him first aid and then he was taken by an MDA ambulance to the hospital.”
