A spokesperson for Magen David Adom, Israel’s national EMS service, said the 22-year-old Israeli woman was taken to Tel Hashomer hospital in light to moderate condition after being stabbed by a 14-year-old Palestinian teenager along Highway 443, near the central-Israeli city of Modiin.

An Israeli police officer was also lightly wounded while trying to restrain the attacker who was arrested and transferred to security personnel for interrogation.

Police say they saw the suspect fleeing the scene on foot before detaining them.
