TEL AVIV, Israel - A suspect who stabbed two Israeli shoppers in a West Bank supermarket was shot by a security guard Wednesday, police said. The attacker, described by local media as a Palestinian, was detained by police at the Rami Levi store on the Mishor Adumim industrial park near the Israeli settlement of Maale Adumim. Unverified pictures posted on Twitter showed a man being held on the floor.
The two stabbed customers were taken to the Ein Karem hospital in Jerusalem and were in a "moderate condition,” according to Israeli police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld. He said the suspect, who he described as a "terrorist," was in a "serious" condition. No further details were immediately available.
On Monday, a Palestinian woman stabbed an Israeli civilian in the West Bank and was then shot by security forces. The victim was “lightly wounded” in that attack,” according to Israeli Army spokesman Lt. Col. Peter Lerner.
