2 men in serious condition after late-night brawl, medics say

One person was killed and nine wounded during violence in south Tel Aviv early Saturday, police and medics said.

A brawl broke out in the Hatikvah neighborhood at around 2:30 a.m., where first responders found eight injured people at the scene of the fighting.

A 20-year-old was rushed to a hospital in serious condition with penetrating wounds to his body, the Magen David Adom emergency service said.

Three others were in moderate condition with similar injuries, and four more were lightly wounded.

Minutes later, medics received a call about another man around the age of 40 in a nearby area who had apparently fled the brawl. He was also in serious condition with penetrating wounds and rushed to a Tel Aviv hospital.
