A stabbing took place in Rosh Ha'ayin Sunday, according to MDA. 

The circumstances of the event remain unclear. While details about the attacker have not been made public, Israeli authorities state that the attacker was apprehended and subdued.

One person was wounded in the attack, suffering a stab wound to the hand. 

MDA said the victim was in light condition after the attack. 

Eli Pechter, an MDA medic who treated the victim, described the scene of the attack: "When I arrived at the scene, security forces led the injured woman to the ambulance. She was fully conscious and suffering from a stab wound to her extremities. I immediately administered first aid to her, including dressing the wound and stopping her bleeding. I quickly evacuated her to Beilinson hospital in good and stable condition."

Rosh Ha'ayin is located in central Israel and has an almost entirely Israeli population.
