A new viral video produced by Hamas is making the rounds on social media. Title “How to stab correctly,” the step-by-step instructional video shows prospective attackers the most lethal ways to stab a person.

The video has widely circulated on Facebook and Twitter amongst Palestinian groups, NRG reported.

The release of the 72-second video comes as stabbing attacks are becoming more frequent in Israel. On Friday, two Border Police guards were stabbed by a Palestinian attacker as they stood guard outside the Lions Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem.


One of the policemen, aged 19, was stabbed in the neck. The second policeman, 35, was stabbed in the hand while trying to apprehend the attacker. Both were evacuated to Shaare Zedek Medical Center for treatment.

The video shows two masked men demonstrating how to hold a knife and achieve the most damage. With one playing the attacker and the other the victim, the video instructs the correct way to stab target areas such as the heart, neck and abdomen.

Portraying different circumstances, the video also shows would be attackers how to escape from different situations, such as how to stab someone and calmly walk away.

The video ends with the message: “What are you waiting for? Rise up and stab.”
