Three young men were stabbed and wounded during a fight outside of a nightclub in Haifa on Friday night. One man was moderately hurt and two additional youths sustained light wounds in the incident. The wounded men were rushed to Rambam Medical Center in Haifa for medical treatment. Police have launched an investigation, but say the identity of the assailants remains unknown. One of the stab victims is from Netanya, and the other two are local Haifa residents, police said. In another violent incident in Haifa on Friday evening, a 45-year-old taxi driver was set upon by four men and a woman outside of a Haifa pub. The group attacked the driver after he refused their demands to be driven home, explaining that he had been called out to the pub to pick up another passenger. The group assaulted the driver, causing light injuries, and damaged his vehicle. The driver was taken to the Rambam Medical Center. Police have arrested four suspects in connection with the attack. The alleged attackers are residents of Acre, and are said to be in their 20s and 40s. In Tel Aviv, Traffic Police pulled over and disqualified 33 vehicles for failing basic road safety standards. Forty six licenses were revoked for reckless driving, and 34 drivers were caught driving under the influence of alcohol at police checkpoints across the city.
