Jerusalem - Video footage has emerged showing footage of a Palestinian man stabbing a woman while trying to escape a knife attack on an Israeli bus in which at least 11 people were wounded.

The video was initially aired by Israel’s Channel 10 TV after news of the Tel Aviv bus attack first broke on Wednesday, AP reported.

Police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld said the Palestinian was a 23-year-old resident of the town of Tulkarm in the West Bank, News24 reported.


Initial reports indicate that at least 11 people on a commuter bus in central Tel Aviv were left wounded by the attack on Wednesday before the suspect was apprehended.

The perpetrator was shot in the leg by a prison security officer as he was trying to escape, police said.

The stabbing was the latest in a string of incidents in the past few months at a time of heightened tension between Palestinians and Israelis, particularly in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.
