Beersheva Chabad Student Stabbed By Bedouin

Matisyahu Garfinkel, a student at a Chabad Yeshiva in Beersheva, was stabbed in the head and face this afternoon by three Beduin Arabs at the Central Bus Station in Beersheva this afternoon.

He is currently hospitalized at Soroka Medical Center in Beersheva.

The incident occurred at 4 PM when three yeshiva boys went to the mall at the Central Bus Station. Two Arabs who were sitting in a car in the parking lot called out to the boys. When Gurfinkel went over to see what they wanted, the Arab took out a kife and was about to slit his throat but by divine providence the the yeshiva boy moved his head and the knife caught his face and head.

People are asked to recite prayers and Psalms for Matisyahu son of Miriam.
