Israeli authorities on Friday believe that the stabbing of a 37-year-old Border Police officer in the northern town of Nahariya was motivated by nationalist sentiments.
The stabbing occurred near the central bus station on Haga'aton Boulevard in the city. The victim suffered light-to-moderate wounds and was rushed to Western Galilee Hospital in Nahariya.
"The young man was lightly stabbed a short time ago near the central bus station and was rushed to hospital," the Magen David Adom first aid service said. "The suspect fled the scene and investigators are searching the area nearby. The crime apparently was motivated by nationalism."
