A 55-year-old Israeli man was severely wounded in a stabbing attack Tuesday afternoon in a community in Samaria.

The terrorist stabbed the Israeli civilian and then fled.

Israel Defense Forces personnel administered first aid and then quickly transported the victim, who was conscious, to a hospital for additional care.

The IDF captured the terrorist in al-Funduq, a town located eight miles southwest of Nablus.

Earlier on Tuesday, Hadash-Ta’al Knesset member Aida Touma-Sliman described as “martyrs” Palestinian gunmen killed during an Israeli security operation in Nablus that targeted an explosives lab belonging to the Lions’ Den terrorist group.

“Nablus bid farewell to our martyrs today. Our Palestinian nation bids farewell to its martyrs,” Touma-Sliman wrote in a Facebook post that included a photo from the subsequent funeral.
