An 18-year-old Israeli girl is in serious condition after being stabbed by a Muslim terrorist in the northern city of Afula on Monday. She managed to walk several meters before collapsing near Aroma cafe in the city center.
The girl was stabbed at a bus stop on Afula’s Arlozorov Street and managed to walk several meters towards the nearby café.
She told passersby several times that she had been stabbed by an Arab. The Muslim terrorist was arrested about an hour later.
The terrorist, 20-year-old Nur Shinawi from Jenin, was apprehended in possession of a knife. He was interrogated by the Shin Bet and initial details revealed that he was an illegal resident and had no security-related record.
The Afula hospital said he was in moderate condition, suffering from wounds in the lower part of his body.
Hospital officials defined her condition as “very serious” and said she had lost a lot of blood. After her condition stabilized, she was transferred to the hospital’s intensive care unit.
