KFAR SABA, Tuesday, April 28, 2020 (WAFA) – Israeli police shot and injured a Palestinian purportedly for carrying out a stabbing attack in Kfar Saba town, northeast of Tel Aviv, in central Israel.
Israeli media reported that police opened fire on a 19-year-old Palestinian, identified as a resident of the West Bank city of Tulkarem, “incapacitated” and detained him for stabbing an Israeli woman at a bus stop in Kfar Saba.
The woman, 62, was rushed to a hospital, where she was reported as conscious and in a moderate condition, while the condition of the suspected assailant, who was detained for questioning, was reported as moderate.
The circumstances surrounding the suspected stabbing attack remain unclear, and largely based on the Israeli version of events.
The present-day Israeli Jewish settlement of Kfar Saba lies just southwest of Kafr Saba, a Palestinian village that was depopulated during the course of ethnic cleansing and establishment of Israel in 1948.
