The attack was carried out by an Arab-Israeli resident of Jerusalem. Eyewitnesses claimed that the attacker ran towards bystanders at a hitchhiking spot and stabbed the 19-year-old in the back.

Police suspect the attack was motivated by nationalist sentiments. Israeli security forces have opened an investigation into the incident.
