Mother of stabbed soldier describes attack

The mother of a female soldier injured in the Tel Aviv stabbing tells reporters she thinks attackers should be killed, and thanks the soldier who shot and killed the man who injured her daughter.

Describing the attack, she says her daughter heard someone shouting and ran toward the middle of the road, at which point the attacker jumped on her and stabbed her in the head.

The mother, who was there as well, says she never heard the attacker say anything.

“As soon as he attacked I ran at them, I didn’t care if he stabbed me too or not. It was my daughter,” she says. “I thank God that my daughter came out of this.”
