A Palestinian Arab terrorist stabbed a civilian Thursday afternoon at the western entrance to the Jewish community of Kiryat Arba, near the ancient city of Hebron.

The victim, age 31, is “severely wounded,” according to military sources. He was treated at the scene and then evacuated for emergency medical care in Jerusalem.

Security personnel chased the attacker according to local sources but the terrorist escaped and remained at large.

Kiryat Arba residents were warned to remain indoors until nearly 5 pm and then released after security personnel concluded the terrorist was not in the community. “Forces are searching the area,” the IDF Spokesperson said.

There were three terrorist attacks against Israeli Jews involving stabbings between 12 noon and 4 pm Thursday afternoon. In two of the three cases, the victims were critically wounded.
