A 17-year-old boy was stabbed to death Saturday in a high school in the Beduin settlement of Touba Zangaria in the Upper Galilee, near Rosh Pina. An MDA ambulance arriving at the scene attempted to evacuate the boy to the Sieff Hospital in Safed, but he died from his wounds on the scene. The stabber was known to police but has not yet been arrested, police said. The attacker was apparently hiding from the police. Officers from the Yarden station were in the offender's village guarding his family in case the victim's family decided to retaliate. The stabbing occurred in the schoolyard. A paramedic said he had "never seen such a [devastating] case, inside a high school's playground." In other news, a 39-year-old woman was moderately wounded when she was shot in the back in the northern village of Tour'an. She was taken to Poriya Hospital in Tiberias where she underwent surgery. The bullet was extracted and the woman hospitalized in the orthopedic department of the hospital in a stable condition. Police have arrested a 60-year-old resident of Tour'an as the prime suspect in the shooting. A preliminary investigation revealed that the shooting was a result of a dispute between alleged criminal residents of the village. The suspect will be brought to court Saturday evening, where police will request extension of his remand.
