Two Israeli Jewish men were stabbed and moderately wounded in the same Palestinian village just north of Jerusalem within the past 24 hours.
The victims apparently had taken their cars to be repaired at the same garage in the village of Hizme, situated adjacent to the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Pisgat Ze’ev.
The first victim, a 48-year-old man who was stabbed on Wednesday afternoon, said he was attacked out of nationalistic motivations. In other words, a terrorist attack.
Police and the IDF are now working under the assumption that both stabbings were acts of nationalistic terrorism, and might even have been carried out by the same assailant.
Both victims are in stable condition at a hospital in Jerusalem.
