Israel Police said Tuesday that they suspect a construction site attack in Modi'in on Tuesday was actually terror-motivated.

The incident occurred around 2 o'clock in the afternoon when Israel Police received a report of a worker at a construction site who attacked the site manager and another person at the scene with a blunt tool. One of the victims was seriously wounded while the second was moderately wounded in the attack.

Fellow workers at the site managed to restrain the suspect until police arrived.

The initial police investigation revealed that the suspect, a 39-year-old man from Beit Sira in the West Bank with an Israeli residency permit, carried out the attack with terror motives.

Police are continuing to investigate the circumstances surrounding the incident.
