BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Two Palestinian street sweepers were stabbed in the city of Beersheba in southern Israel on Sunday morning, according to an Israeli police spokeswoman who said an Israeli in his twenties was detained for committing the attack.

Luba al-Samri said in a written statement in Arabic that the Palestinian workers were from the area, seeming to suggest the two held Israeli citizenship.

The two were evacuated to a hospital were they were treated for minor wounds.

Al-Samri identified the suspect behind the stabbing as an Israeli Jew in his twenties from Beersheba, saying that initial investigations indicated the motive behind the attack was "criminal," without providing further details.
