Four Israel Police officers were injured in a stabbing attack at a police station in Jerusalem.

A terrorist carried out the attack at the Oz police station in the Armon Hanatziv neighbourhood of Jerusalem on Wednesday evening.

The terrorist entered the station and tried to stab the policemen who were inside. One policeman was lightly wounded in the head as a result of the stabbings and a Border Police officer was hit by shrapnel as the terrorist was shot in an attempt to neutralize him. Two other policemen were wounded.

Other policemen at the scene were able to neutralise the terrorist.

The attacker, and the officers, were taken to Shaarey Tzedek hospital in Jerusalem for treatment.

Security was increased in the area following the attack, and security officials searched the area for other would-be attackers.

The Armon Hanatziv neighbourhood, located on the seam between western and eastern Jerusalem, was the site of several Arab stabbing and car ramming attacks in recent years.
