Two more stabbing attacks have taken place on Israelis on Wednesday, 7th October.

Palestinian woman stabs Israeli man before getting shot

A teenage Palestinian woman stabbed an Israeli man near the Lions’ Gate of the Old City of Jerusalem on Wednesday morning and was then shot at the scene.

She was shot by her victim, who was stabbed in the back, police said.

The man was initially treated near the scene of the attack, the Magen David Adom emergency medical service said in a statement.

The stabber, 18, was in critical condition, while the Israeli man was moderately wounded.

“Upon arriving, I saw two patients,” MDA paramedic Aharon Adler told The Times of Israel. “One of them, an approximately 30-year-old male with stab wounds to his upper body, fully conscious; alongside him, a young woman with gunshot wounds. According to him, she came up and stabbed him twice from behind. And then she was shot.

“Her condition was worse than his,” he added.

The two were rushed to the nearby Western Wall plaza for treatment before an ambulance took them to the hospital, Adler said.
