(Israel Hayom/Exclusive to A haredi Jewish man was stabbed in the neck while walking through an underpass in the Jewish quarter of Antwerp, Belgium, on Saturday morning. The motive for the crime remains unclear.

The 31-year-old victim was treated for his wounds and released from hospital. He was walking to synagogue at about 10 a.m. when a man he did not recognize stabbed him and fled. Security camera footage shows the attacker, who appears to be a white male, running away from the scene of the crime. The Belgian police have not yet determined whether the stabbing was an anti-Semitic crime.
