A 39-year-old Orthodox Israeli has succumbed to do his wounds after being brutally stabbed by a Palestinian in Petah Tikvah. He had been evacuated to Beilinson hospital in critical condition with wounds to his upper body.

“The wounded man was lying on the sidewalk unconscious, suffering from bleeding wounds on his torso,” said MDA paramedics Ilan Mualem and Hezi Gutman, who treated the victim at the scene.

“We immediately began to provide life-saving medical treatment, including bandaging the wounds, stopping the bleeding, and advanced resuscitating techniques, the paramedics said.

“We then quickly took him into the mobile intensive care unit and evacuated him to the hospital in critical condition, while continuing to attempt to resuscitate him.”

The suspected assailant, Khalil Dweikat, 46, a Palestinian from Nablus was arrested.
