Another youth who was stabbed in the neck was in critical condition in the hospital.

According to police, some of the youths were drunk during the incident, and were injured from knives and broken bottles.

The incident was the second stabbing incident to take place in the coastal city in the space of a week. On Saturday a 16-year-old boy was seriously injured during a stabbing at a beach in Ashdod.

The stabbing apparently occurred when a fight broke out between a few young people.



MDA paramedics took the wounded boy to Kaplan Hospital in Rehovot.
