Two Israelis stabbed in the West Bank – IDF refers to “terrorist attack”

UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (OBSERVATORY) — In an attack that has already been defined as a “terrorist attack” in light of the first elements of the investigation, two Israelis were stabbed in a village in the West Bank.

Two Israelis were injured in a village near Qalqilya in the West Bank during an attack that is already considered by the authorities as a terrorist.

“The preliminary investigation of this incident proves that it was a terrorist attack,” according to a statement from the Israeli army press service.

Israeli relief services Magen David Adom took charge of two men aged 60 and 17. The latter were stabbed during an attack in the village of Azzoun. Doctors believe that the young man’s health is worrying because of his multiple injuries.

According to AFP, which refers to the local media, the two victims were coming out of the dentist when a young Palestinian approached them and asked them if they were Jews, before stabbing them.

Army services say the attack was carried out by a single 17-year-old terrorist who was arrested by Palestinian police, according to Israeli TV channel 13.
