Israeli Stabbing Victim Pulls Knife Out of His Own Neck, Kills Terrorist With It
When a Palestinian youth decided to go on a stabbing spree in the Israeli city of Petah Tikva, he picked the wrong victim.
The Times of Israel reports an unnamed 40-year-old Israeli was collecting for a charity downtown when his assailant descended upon him in a wine store. After being stabbed multiple times in the upper body, he managed to break away from his attacker and flee from the store.
Police say the man removed the knife from his own neck and decided to go back to the store. With the assistance of the owner, he subdued and stabbed the terrorist to death. Remarkably, despite being stabbed in the neck, the victim was sent to the hospital fully conscious and is now “in moderate condition.”
The stabbing attack was one of three terrorist attacks in Israel Tuesday. Another stabbing claimed the life of an American tourist and injured five in Jaffa and a Jerusalem shooting attack left one police officer dead and another injured. The assailant in the Jerusalem attack was also killed.
