Four Israelis were stabbed and wounded, one seriously, in the southern city of Kiryat Gat Saturday in what police described as a terrorist attack.

Spokesman Micky Rosenfeld called it a “confirmed terrorist attack,” noting that security forces were searching for at least one attacker who had fled the scene, near the football stadium in the center of town.

Israel’s Magen David Adom emergency medical service said one of the four was in serious condition, two were moderate and another lightly hurt.

A wave of violence has left 86 Palestinians dead -- many of them alleged assailants -- as well as 15 Israelis, an American and an Eritrean.
