A young man died after he was stabbed in the torso in the central Israeli city of Petah Tikva shortly before midnight on Thursday.

The man was rushed to the Rabin Center-Beilinson Campus in the city, where he died from his wounds. It appears as though he was involved in a fight when the stabbing occurred.

The incident is the latest in a wave of violence in the city. Two brothers were stabbed two weeks ago after a fight near a bar in the city center; the older brother died as a result of his wounds.

This week, two local residents were charged with the murder of a Sudanese man in the city three weeks ago.
