Police arrest three teens suspected of stabbing another

Police arrest three teenagers, aged 15, 16 and 18, who are suspected of stabbing a 15-year-old boy from the Arab town of Jisr a-Zarka early Friday.

The boy arrived at Hillel Yaffe Medical Center in Hadera with stab wounds in his upper torso this morning. He is in moderate condition.

Zichron Yaakov police initially said it was too early to tell if the youth was the victim of a hate crime amid a recent wave of knife-related terror attacks.

Police now say they believe the stabbing attack was related to an old feud between the assailants and the victim.

The suspects will face a remand hearing later today at the Haifa Magistrate’s Court.
