A 48-year-old security guard was attacked by a Palestinian terrorist with an ax at a mall in Ma'aleh Adumim yesterday. He underwent surgery at Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital, but doctors say that his condition is worsening.
He is currently sedated and on a respirator.
The guard was not armed at the time of the attack. Authorities are still searching for the terrorist.
This was only one of three attacks last night. In addition, a 16-year-old tried to stab soldiers near a checkpoint in Beit El and two terrorist tried to carry out a drive-by shooting, also in Ma'aleh Adumim. No one was harmed in either of the other two attacks.
