A Palestinian, 30, from Jenin repeatedly stabbed an 18-year old girl on the high street of the northern Israeli town of Afula on Monday. When passers-by intervened, he took to his heels. The girl is in very serious condition and treated for internal bleeding at the HaEmek Hospital. The terrorist was shot and captured in a broad police hunt with volunteers. Police continue to comb the area for accomplices who may have helped the attacker infiltrate Israel and reach Afula from the Palestinian town of Jenin.
