A Palestinian terrorist stabbed and lightly wounded an Israeli man on Ha’nevi’im Street in Jerusalem on Monday.
The terrorist, a resident of the West Bank, was arrested by police.
The victim, described as a haredi youth, was treated by paramedics on the scene, before being transported to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in the capital for further treatment.
National Police Spokesman Micky Rosenfeld stated that police who were stationed in the area heard yelling on Ha’Nevi’im Street in the direction of Damascus Gate.
Upon approaching they saw the suspect stabbing a Jewish man before fleeing the scene. The suspect tossed away his knife while running from police.
Police apprehended the man after a short chase and took him into custody.
The attack comes after last week two elderly women, in their eighties, were stabbed by two Palestinian terrorists as they walked in Jerusalem.
