Magen David Adom paramedics found the man lying on the ground with multiple stab wounds. He was rushed to Kaplan Medical Center in Rehovot.

Lachish police arrested two suspects on the scene, and opened an intensive investigation that led to two more suspects being arrested.

An unprecedented number of knife possession cases were opened by police in 2010 – 12,223 – compared to 11,302 in 2009, a rise of 8 percent, according to police figures.

In January, then-Israel Police Insp.-Gen. David Cohen said, however, that “compared to other societies, Israeli society is not violent.

We have violence, but we are not a violent society.

“Compared to OECD countries, the crime rate in Israel is a little over the median rate,” Cohen said.
