Israeli police on Monday shot and wounded a Palestinian man after he allegedly stabbed and seriously injured a 70-year-old Israeli man in the northern Israeli city of Netanya, north of Tel Aviv, Israeli sources said.
A spokesperson for Israel’s emergency services Magen David Adom (MDA) said that the Israeli was in a serious condition and had been taken to Laniado hospital in Netanya.
He said MDA had also treated the injured Palestinian but had no immediate information on his condition.
The Palestinian has been identified as Ziyad Ridha, 22, from Balaa village east of Tulkarem in the northern occupied West Bank, the head of the village local council told Ma’an.
Israeli army spokesperson Peter Lerner said that the Palestinian “terrorist” was shot by police in Netanya, while the 70-year-old was “severely wounded.”
