Dr. Ofer Merin, executive director of Shaare Zedek's Trauma Unit said the wounded security guard had arrived at the hospital in very serious condition and was immediately operated on. "Unfortunately, the knife hit his heart," he added. "His condition has stabilized, but we can't say his life isn't in danger at this time."

 

Senior MDA paramedic Hananel Albo said there had been a great commotion outside the central bus station when he arrived there. "A man in his 30s was lying near the entrance, barely conscious and suffering from a stabbing wound in the upper part of his body.

"The crews dispatched to the area are attending to a number of people who witnessed the incident and suffered anxiety attacks," the paramedic added.

 

 Yochai Swisa, who witnessed the attack, said: "It took me a few seconds to realize I was at the scene of a terror attack. That vile person's deep insanity made me realize it was a terror attack. There was hysteria, and several minutes later he was shoved by the angry crowd, which hit and attacked him ceaselessly."
