Two Palestinian workers were wounded, Sunday, after being stabbed by Israeli settlers in Beersheba.

PNN reports that, according to Israeli media, the two Palestinians sustained light wounds after they were stabbed by colonial settlers during work hours, in the sanitation systems of Beersheba.

Ma’an reported that according to Israeli police, a young Israeli man in his twenties was detained for committing the attack. The Palestinian workers were confirmed to be from the area, seeming to suggest that the two held Israeli citizenship.

The two were evacuated to a hospital were they were treated for minor wounds.
Police identified the suspect behind the stabbing as an Israeli Jew in his twenties from Beersheba, saying that initial investigations indicated the motive behind the attack was “criminal,” without providing further details.
