Police have arrested the attacker. "The suspect marched on the construction site and stabbed the first person he saw," a Sharon sub-district police spokesman told The Jerusalem Post.

Patrol cars arrived quickly on the site.

Police say their speedy response prevented a more serious incident from unfolding.

"He launched the attack without talking much," the spokesman added. The suspect has no known previous criminal offenses. He is being questioned at a local police station. The stabbing suspect is said to be in light condition.

Meanwhile, in an unrelated incident, a man from Ashdod was shot and moderately injured early on Sunday morning in a market. Paramedics rushed the man to the Kaplan Medical Center in Rehovot.

Ashdod police station chief Dep.-Cmdr. Noam Shakal arrived on the scene to oversee the investigation into the shooting.
