Video shows knifeman slash tires during fight on central highway
A video published online shows a fight between motorists on a major central-Israel highway, with one driver using a knife to puncture the tires of a second driver and then threatening to use the knife on him as well.
The fight on Route 431 occurred two weeks ago, but the video gets posted on Twitter today, hours after a funeral for a Holon man who was stabbed to death during a road rage incident last week.

In the video shared by several Hebrew media outlets, a man, reportedly from Bat Yam, is seen approaching another driver standing next to his car and arguing with him. After the second driver shoves the approaching man away repeatedly, he pulls out a knife and slashes two of the car’s tires.
As the knifeman walks away, the second driver runs after him and raises his fists as if to punch him, before the knifeman threateningly raises the weapon, causing the second man, apparently from the nearby city of Rehovot, to back away.
The Bat Yam man was detained by police following the incident but released after questioning, according to reports.
