Israeli security forces on Thursday arrested a Palestinian suspected of stabbing and seriously injuring an Israeli in a West Bank terror attack last October.
The unnamed suspect had been on the loose for nearly six months after stabbing Meir Pavlovsky, 30, in Kiryat Arba and fleeing the scene.
Police at the time said the suspect had fled into nearby Hebron.
Pavlovsky, originally from Ukraine, was stabbed in the stomach and back and was evacuated to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem in serious condition. He underwent several surgeries to stabilize his condition.
Three weeks after the stabbing, Pavlovsky got engaged to his girlfriend, according to media reports.

The stabbing attack occurred on October 8, 2015, one of four such attacks that day in which a total of nine people were injured.
The attacks came near the beginning of a wave of terror assaults which have included stabbing, shootings, car-rammings and, most recently, a bus bombing in Jerusalem in which 20 people were injured. The bomber was the only casualty in the attack.
Twenty-nine Israelis and four non-Israelis have been killed in the recent terror wave. More than 180 Palestinians have also been killed, some two-thirds of them while attacking Israelis, and the rest during clashes with troops, according to the Israeli army.
