Two Israeli yeshiva students and a police officer suffered moderate injuries when an Arab terrorist stabbed them Saturday on Hagay Street, the main thoroughfare in the Old City of Jerusalem.
According to initial reports, the Arab terrorist stabbed the yeshiva students and immediately fled the scene. At that point, he was spotted near Ateret HaCohanim Yeshiva, where he was shot by an Israeli security force member.
At 3:13pm, MDA sources responded to the scene to treat two civilians, an 18 and 20-year-old, with stab wounds to their torso. Additionally, paramedics treated one police officer who had been stabbed in the thigh.
The victims were transported to Jerusalem’s Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital.
This is the second stabbing attack in Jerusalem’s Old City this week. On March 29, a female Arab terrorist was shot dead by police after attempting to stab officers with a pair of scissors.
