An Israeli man was injured and two teenage girls were under arrest in what authorities said was a terror stabbing attack in Ramle Thursday morning.
The girls drew knives and attacked a guard who challenged them after they set off a metal detector, police said. The Israeli man, a 25-year-old security guard at the city’s mall near the central bus station, was lightly injured. He was taken to Assaf Harofeh Hospital in Tzifrin.
The two terrorists, whom police said were 13-year-old Arab girls, who are Israeli citizens, were arrested at the scene, and are being questioned by police. A photo from the scene shared by police showed two kitchen knives on the ground beside a calculator, pens and other school supplies.
Ramle is a mixed Jewish-Arab town that has remained particularly quiet during the recent terror wave.
