A Prison Services officer was moderately wounded on Friday after he was stabbed in the back by one of the prisoners in Wing 8 of the Sharon prison, the wing for juvenile security prisoners. When the officer entered one of the cells to take a head count, a 17-year-old prisoner being held for throwing Molotov cocktails attacked him with a 15-centimeter blade. The prisoner managed to stab the officer twice in the back before a nearby warden saw what was going on and succeeded in restraining the perpetrator until backup arrived. The officer was taken to the Meir hospital in Kfar Saba for treatment.
