JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- An Israeli man was injured Wednesday night in a stabbing attack at a gas station outside an illegal Israeli settlement north of Jerusalem, Israeli police said.

Israeli police spokesperson Luba al-Samri said in a statement that a middle-aged Israeli man was critically injured in the upper body after he was stabbed at the entrance of a gas station complex near the illegal Givat Zeev settlement and taken to the Shaare Zedek Medical Center for medical treatment.

An 18-year-old from the occupied West Bank village of Bir Nibala suspected of carrying out the stabbing fled the scene and was chased down and held by witnesses before being detained by Israeli police following the incident.

Al-Samri said the teen was also taken to the hospital for medical treatment, without specifying the nature of his wounds.

The incident was one of a number of attacks to be carried out over the past week in or close to Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank.

On Monday, a stabbing attack took place in the illegal Beit Horon settlement, also near Jerusalem, resulting in the death of a 24-year-old Israeli woman, as well as the injury of a middle-aged Israeli woman.

The perpetrators of the attack, a 17-year-old from Qalandiya refugee camp and a Palestinian in his 20s from the village of Beit Ur al-Tahta, were both shot dead on site by an Israeli security guard.

A few days before, on Friday, a 13-year-old Palestinian girl was shot dead after Israeli police said she attempted to stab an Israeli security guard outside the illegal settlement of Anatot northeast of Jerusalem.

The week before, two attacks were carried out in occupied West Bank settlements, one of which resulted in the death of an Israeli woman.

Until last week, most Palestinians attacks since a wave of unrest swept the occupied territory in October had been directed at Israeli military forces deployed in the West Bank.
