08-Mar-16: In Petach Tikva late this afternoon, the Arab stabber is killed; his Israeli victim is hospitalized

It's a delightful spring Tuesday here in Jerusalem. But there is Arab-on-Israeli violence in the air yet again.

Late this afternoon on Baron Hirsch Street in Petach Tikvah, an Arab terrorist male launched a knifing attack on a Jewish male, evidently a Haredi man aged around 35-40. According to an Israel National News report, the Jewish man fought back, wrestled the knife from the attacker's hand and stabbed him to death. The stabbing victim was rushed to nearby Beilinson Medical Center in moderate condition with multiple stabbing wounds to the upper body.

The attacker is reported to be an Arab in his 20s, Times of Israel says he "is apparently a Palestinian from the West Bank". But at this stage, details are in short supply.
