Johannesburg - A South African who immigrated to Israel in October last year is facing charges in that country after allegedly stabbing a soldier during a brawl.

Haaretz reports that Adam Michael Gringruz, 20, originally from Johannesburg, allegedly stabbed an 18-year-old off-duty soldier in the neck with a broken bottle outside a Tel Aviv bar.

He claims it was in self-defence, after being chased by eight youths from the bar.

The injured soldier is in a moderate to serious condition at a hospital in Tel Aviv.

Gringruz's father, Yossi, is visiting Israel. He told Haaretz he had been allowed to meet his son for "two minutes" and that his son sustained a head injury in the altercation.

"He was going to enter the Israeli army in a few months," said Yossi Gringruz.

The family has lived in Johannesburg for more than 20 years, after moving from Russia to Israel in 1975.
