Victim Of Terrorist Knife Attack Pulls Blade From Own Neck And Kills Attacker With It
The citizens of Israel live in a constant daily state of awareness that at any moment their lives may come to an abrupt change due to a fanatical strangers desire to create carnage at any cost.
The latest unprovoked incident once again involved a militant Palestinian attacking an Israeli man with a knife and stabbing him in the neck, however to the surprise of the attacker the victim didn’t die, but instinctively reacted by pulling the bloody knife from his own neck and using it against his attacker and killing him.
The 40-year-old Israeli was apparently collecting money for charity at a store in the suburb of Petah Tikva at the time he was assaulted.
After receiving several wounds to the neck and upper body in what police described as a “frenzied attack,” he removed the attacker’s knife from his own body and, together with the store owner, used the knife on the attacker.
The man is currently hospitalized in moderate condition; the store owner received no injuries.
Israeli police confirmed that the incident was a terrorist attack, countering earlier reports that it may have been the result of an altercation.
This senseless act of violence mirrors yet another attack in the city of Tel Aviv only hours apart in which an American student was killed and 11 others wounded during a series of stabbings which the U.S. Department of State described as “outrageous terrorist attacks.”
