Israeli civilian injured in stabbing attack at Ariel Junction. Assailant apprehended.

Palestinian man stabbed an Israeli Sunday afternoon at a bus stop on the side of a West Bank highway near the settlement of Ariel.

The incident took place on Route 5, just east of Ariel, in the northern West Bank.

The 25-year-old victim was moderately hurt with stab wounds to his upper body. He was taken to Beilinson Hospital in Petah Tikvah for treatment.

According to Channel 2, the suspect approached the bus stop wearing a Jewish skullcap and attacked the victim.

The suspect initially fled the scene, prompting IDF troops to block the entrances to several nearby Palestinian villages in order to help search for the perpetrator of the attack.

After a manhunt by police and the IDF, Israeli soldiers apprehended a suspect in the nearby village of Marda.

He was stabbed after exiting his car when it was pelted with stones, the Israeli army said.

“Initial reports suggest that moments before the attack the Israeli exited his car due to rocks hurled at the road,” the army said in a statement. “The Palestinian then attacked the Israeli, stabbing him in his chest.”

Police are searching for the attacker.
