Beersheba police set up roadblocks Tuesday after an IDF soldier said two Arab men had attempted to force him into a vehicle, stabbing him twice in the process. According to the soldier's account, a black vehicle pulled up to where he was standing. He said two occupants of the vehicle grabbed him and stabbed him twice in the stomach with an unknown object. The soldier said the assailants drove away after he had repelled their efforts. Police said injuries had been identified on the soldier's stomach by paramedics sent out to treat him.
