A 43-year-old man was stabbed Sunday morning in Jerusalem’s Gilo neighborhood.

Paramedics provided emergency medical treatment and evacuated him to Shaare Zedek Hospital in serious condition with several knew wounds to his upper body.

The victims was conscious and said the man who attacked him was Arab in appearance.

Israeli police, however, are calling the incident a criminal attack and not a terrorist incident.

A member of Magen David Adom, Israel’s ambulance service, said: “When I got to the place, I saw a man sitting, leaning against the fence, vaguely conscious. He had a number of stab wounds in his upper body.

“I gave him life-saving medical treatment that included stopping bleeding. We took him to an intensive care unit and quickly evacuated him to the hospital when he was in moderate condition. “
