One Israeli was killed and another seriously wounded in a terrorist stabbing in a shopping center in the northern city of Karmiel on Wednesday.

Magen David Adom paramedics treated the two victims, both in their 20s, on the scene before evacuating them to Galilee Medical Center in Nahariya, where one of them died of his wounds.

The terrorist, believed to be an Arab-Israeli man, was shot dead by one of the wounded victims, the commander of the Israel Police Northern District, Maj. Gen. Shuki Tahauko, told local media following a situational assessment.

“When I arrived at the shopping mall I was sent to the second floor. I saw two casualties, males in their 20s, lying close to the stalls with penetrating wounds. One was unconscious,” said MDA paramedic Ran Moskowitz.

In January, an Israeli soldier was wounded in a car-ramming near a naval base in the northern city of Haifa. The terrorist, identified as Wassim Abu al-Hoga, an Arab Israeli from Tamra in the Lower Galilee, drove a car into the 20-year-old victim and then attacked him with an axe.

On Tuesday, an Israeli man was moderately wounded when Palestinian terrorists fired on the Mitzpe Yosef outpost on Mount Gerizim near Nablus in the West Bank.
