Four people were stabbed throughout the country in less than a day beginning Friday night. A 19-year-old man was lightly wounded when he was stabbed early Saturday in Rishon Lezion. He was evacuated to Asaf Harofe Hospital in Kfar Sava. Two suspects, both 19, were detained by police, who said that the incident occurred when the victim refused to step aside when the suspected attackers asked him to move. A youth was stabbed in the stomach and chest early Saturday on Keren Hayesod Street in Kiryat Bialik near Haifa. The youth was evacuated to Rambam Hospital in the city. The incident marked the second youth stabbing in 12 hours in the Haifa area.
