In Netanya, on Israel's Mediterranean seashore a few miles north of Tel Aviv, there was yet another stabbing attack this evening. First reported as a criminal assault, it's clearer now that this was terrorism. The attacker is said by Times of Israel and
confirmed by police as a 23-year-old Palestinian from the West Bank city of Tulkarem, which lies just ten miles east of Netanya. He was shot by a police officer, reportedly while attempting to flee the scene. He is said to be in critical condition.
The victim of the knifing attack on Tachkemoni Street is an Israeli man in his seventies. His condition is said to be very serious, with substantial loss of blood from from a single stab wound to the back (to no one's surprise). He is undergoing emergency treatment right now at nearby Sanz Medical Center/Laniado Hospital.

This terror attack comes just a couple of hours after the Rishon Lezion stabbing that injured three, including an 80-year-old woman.
