Helicopters searching for West Bank stabber

More details come out regarding the stabbing attack at the entrance to Ma’ale Adumim.

There were three private security guards at the checkpoint where the incident occurred. According to one of the guards, they noticed the Palestinian man loitering at the junction, looking ill at ease, before he decided to approach. The guards asked him to present an ID, at which point the attacker pulled out a knife and stabbed one of guards, named Avi, in his torso. The victim, in his 60s, was fully conscious when he was brought to the hospital.

The other two guards opened fire, but failed to hit the perpetrator, who fled into Azaria, and adjacent village.

Helicopters and ground forces are searching for the attacker in the area.
