An Israeli man attacked by a Palestinian Tuesday allegedly pulled his assailant’s knife from his own neck and then proceeded to kill the attacker.

The 40-year-old Israeli was apparently collecting money for charity at a store in the suburb of Petah Tikva at the time he was assaulted. After receiving several wounds to the neck and upper body in what police described as a “frenzied attack,” he removed the attacker’s knife from his own body and, together with the store owner, used the knife on the attacker.

The man is currently hospitalized in moderate condition, the store owner received no injuries. Israeli police confirmed that the incident was a terrorist attack, countering earlier reports that it may have been the result of an altercation.

Nati Ostri, a paramedic who helped treat the victim, said he was found on the floor of the store before being transferred to a local hospital.

“Together with other volunteers of the Ambucycle Unit of United Hatzalah we treated the victim utilizing first aid treatment, following which he was taken to Beilinson Hospital in an ambulance. At the time of transfer the victim was conscious,” said Ostri.

The incident is one of a slew of Palestinian terror attacks that occurred throughout Israel Tuesday while Vice President Joe Biden visited the Israeli port of Jaffa. A U.S. citizen was killed in an attack less than a mile from where Biden met with former Israeli President Shimon Peres.
