One Israeli stabbed, another injured in possible terrorist attack in Jerusalem

Fortunately both Israelis are still alive, but one of them is in “serious-to-moderate” condition after being stabbed by a group of Muslims in Jerusalem:

JERUSALEM POST – A Jewish man in his 40s is in moderate-to-serious condition after being stabbed in the upper torso Monday evening, while another man sustained light wounds, police said, when both were attacked by a group of Arab assailants near the Old City’s Jaffa Gate.

According to Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld, police “strongly believe the stabbing was a terrorist attack.”

“The victims were surrounded by a group of Arab men, and one was stabbed and the other was lightly injured, although it is not clear if he was stabbed as well,” Rosenfeld said shortly following the attack.

Police arrested one of the suspects and continue to search for the others after they fled the scene, he said, adding that the stabbing victim managed to walk to a nearby police station where he received first aid before being rushed to Shaare Zedek Medical Center.

“Police continue to search the Old City for the other suspects and hope to make arrests soon,” Rosenfeld said.

The attack comes after an Arab youth said he was assaulted Sunday night by three Jewish men near Pisgat Ze’ev, a Jewish neighborhood in east Jerusalem. The unidentified victim was transferred to an area hospital in light condition, police said.
