A Palestinian terrorist stabbed and seriously injured an Israeli man near Kiryat Arba on Thursday afternoon.

The injured man, 25, was evacuated to the Shaare Tzedek Medical Center in Jerusalem suffering from stab wounds to his upper body, Magen David Adom paramedics said.

The incident occurred near the western gate of the settlement, which is near Hebron.

Moti Unger, a senior MDA paramedic who reached the scene, said he found a fully conscious man with stab wounds, and began providing him with life-saving medical treatment on the spot, which included bandaging the wounds, providing liquids, and blood components.

"We evacuated him in serious condition" to hospital, Unger said.

IDF units have begun to sweep the area searching for the attacker.
