Terrorist attacks a man about 50 years old outside a gas station restaurant, seriously wounding him; civilians tackle attacker to the ground, lightly wounding him.

Civilians apprehended a terrorist on Wednesday night after he seriously wounded a man about 50 years old in the settlement of Givat Ze’ev near Jerusalem.

The victim was taken to the trauma center at the Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem in serious and unstable condition. He was taken into the operation room.

The attacker, around 18 years old, opened the door to one of the restaurants at a gas station near the Giv’onim Junction on Route 436 and stabbed a man that was standing there in his upper body.

He fled the scene, dropping his knife, and was caught some 200 meters south of the gas stop by civilians who pursued him. Another knife was found on his person.

When the terrorist threw his knife during his escape, it hit and injured Hillel Hagar, who was chasing after him.

The terrorist was lightly wounded when he was caught, but civilians at the scene blocked the path of an ambulance trying to take him to the hospital. He was eventually taken to the Hadassah Medical Center on Jerusalem’s Mount Scopus, suffering from minor bruising.

Moshe, who works at a nearby bakery, described the attack: “I was at the bakery and we heard screams. We saw the terrorist running away. He threw the knife and hit one of the guys. Two people tackled him to the ground and then we jumped him – five or six of us – and beat him with stones to the head. Then the police came and took him, and an ambulance evacuated him.”

Civilians gathered at the scene of the attack called out “Death to Arabs.” One of them said, “Look what’s happening here – and what the government cares about is demolishing a synagogue.”
