The following video is taken by security cameras in the Yavne Shufersal supermarket, the scene of the Wednesday, 10 Av stabbing attack. Police first stated they were uncertain, pointing to a criminally-related stabbing, but are now all but certain the stabbing was a terror attack.
Officials at Kaplan Hospital in Rehovot earlier today reported the condition of the victim as critical/unstable.
The terrorist, 19-year-old PA (Palestinian Authority) resident Ismail Ibrahim Ismail Abu Aram is from Yata, a village in the Southern Hebron Hills area. The Shin Bet reports he does not have a terrorist record. He was taken into custody as the other video shows.
IDF forces during the afternoon hours following the attack arrived at the Yata home of the terrorist.
In the second video, a surgeon provides an update on the victim’s condition.
