An Eritrean asylum seeker was stabbed and seriously injured Saturday night on Baron Hirsch Street in the central city of Petah Tikva.
Magen David Adom paramedics treated the man at the scene and then took him to Beilinson Hospital in the city.
Hebrew media reports said the man was around 25 years old and that the stabbing happened during an altercation.
Police opened an investigation.
There are approximately 38,000 African migrants and asylum seekers in Israel, according to the Interior Ministry. About 72 percent are Eritrean and 20% are Sudanese, and the vast majority arrived between 2006 and 2012.

Last month, the Knesset approved an amendment to the so-called “Infiltrator’s Law” paving the way for the forced deportations of Eritrean and Sudanese migrants and asylum seekers starting in March, and the indefinite imprisonment of those who refuse to leave.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has announced deals to send the migrants to third-party countries in Africa. Though he has refused to divulge where they are they are widely thought to be Rwanda and Uganda.
There has been growing opposition to the deportation plan.
