Police were searching for a suspect after an Israeli man was stabbed in the West Bank Monday morning in a possible terror attack.
The man was taken to a hospital in Jerusalem with light injuries after the attack at the Mishor Adumim junction at approximately 8 a.m, Israel Police spokesman Mickey Rosenfeld said.
The attacker fled the scene, and army units and police officers were combing the area, Rosenfeld said.
The attacker, identified as a Palestinian by several Hebrew-language media outlets, got into a taxi with Palestinian license plates and drove east toward Jericho, Israel Radio reported.
The victim was not named, but his age was given as 19, Hebrew-language news site Ynet reported.
It was not immediately clear if the stabbing was terror-related.
In December, a Palestinian teenager stabbed two people in a Rami Levy supermarket in the Mishor Adumim industrial zone, which sits east of Jerusalem in the West Bank.
In August, a guard at the entrance to adjacent Maaleh Adumim settlement was stabbed by a Palestinian man.
