A witness was quoted as saying "I heard a lot of people yelling and I didn't understand what was happening. I saw a soldier and two other people holding sticks. Someone was yelling 'call the police, there was a terrorist!' I saw the soldier with his head covered in blood. It happened on the sidewalk, and it seemed as if the soldier was on his way home. His parents came down to the street and were in shock."
The attack occured close to the Kirya base, which is the IDF headquarters. The soldier arrived at Ichilov hospital and is being treated in the emergency room. He is fully conscious.
