Jerusalem – Israeli police say a Palestinian has stabbed and seriously wounded an Israeli man in the West Bank.
Police spokeswoman Luba Samri says Wednesday’s attack took place near a gas station in the West Bank settlement of Givat Zeev.
She said a 50-year-old man was stabbed and that he was evacuated to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem in serious condition.
