Palestinian recovering after being 'stabbed by Israelis' in late June

HEBRON (Ma'an) -- A Palestinian man told Ma'an Sunday that he was stabbed 12 times by Israelis in central Israel over a week ago.

Ali Ibrahim Abu Zahra, 22 from Yatta in the southern West Bank, told Ma'an he was working in Israel when he was tricked into getting into a car with three Israelis who later stabbed him repeatedly.

"One evening after a long working day, I was standing by the road to breathe some fresh air," Abu Zahra told Ma'an.

"Suddenly a car stopped and three settlers (Israelis) stepped out and offered to pay me 700 shekels for two-hour job," Abu Zahra said.

"I agreed and stepped into their car unaware of what they were plotting."

He said one of the three Israelis sprayed something on his face from a bottle he took out of his pocket, and that he lost consciousness.

"I woke up after a while to find myself lying on the ground in a forest bleeding from different cuts all over my body," he said.

Abu Zahra was found in al-Ramadin Forest, his brother told Ma'an.

He was later taken to Soroka Hospital in Beersheba, where doctors conducted blood transfusions.

The man works in Israel without a permit to help support a 14-member family.

An Israeli spokesman did not immediately comment on the incident.

Around 15,000-30,000 Palestinians work in Israel without permits, according to Israeli human rights group B'Tselem.
