The Palestinian stabbing attack against Tomer Ditore, 28, on Tuesday evening was caught from a distance on a short video that was published on a number of WhatsApp groups a day later.

A Hebrew speaking narrator can be heard explaining the actions seen on the video, which would otherwise be hard to discern.

It shows Ditore, wearing a bright orange shirt jogging on the the Derech Ha’avot path near the Neve Daniel settlement in the Gush Etzion region of the West Bank.

A Palestinian man runs up the grassy hill and onto the path where Ditore is jogging. He runs behind Ditore and then catches up to him.

The two men can be seen struggling. It is at this point that the Palestinian stabs Ditore and then runs away back down the grassy hill in the direction of the nearby village of Nahlin.

Ditore turns around and runs a short distance in the direction of Neve Daniel, before stopping on the path. A second jogger finds him there and calls for help.

When Magen David Adom paramedics arrived they found Ditore lying on the ground fully conscious. They transported him to Jerusalem’s Sha’are Tzedek Medical Center where he is listed in light to moderate condition with stab wounds in the upper part of his body.

Immediately after the attack security forces cordoned off roads in the area, including to Nahin, and erected checkpoints to search for the suspect.They have yet to find the assailant.
