The wounded man and other witnesses claimed that the Palestinian ran towards them and stabbed the young man in his back. Police believe the motive for the attack was a nationalistic background.


The victim was transferred to a Magen David Adom ambulance while he was en route to Jerusalem. The ambulance picked up the 19-year-old man at the Al-Zayim checkpoint in Ma'ale Adumim and evacuated him to the hospital. 


Magen David Adom paramedic Oded Shabat who arrived at the checkpoint said that "a man of about 20 years of age with a stab wound to his torso was sitting inside a private vehicle. They told us that he was stabbed while standing at a hitchhiking spot in Mishor Adumim. We gave him medical treatment and evacuated him to the trauma room at the Sha'are Tzedek Medical Center."
