(JNS.org) Two yeshiva students were stabbed by Arabs on Monday night in Jerusalem’s Old City near an entrance to the Temple Mount in what they said was a nationalistically motivated terror attack. The Magen David Adom ambulance service reported that one of the men (in his mid-40s) was moderately wounded and that the other (in his early 30s) was lightly wounded.

After the attack, the two Jewish students walked to the Old City police station, where police called the ambulance service after seeing that the older man was bleeding from his upper torso. A paramedic who arrived on scene said the students were evacuated to the trauma unit at Shaare Zedek Medical Center, according to Israel Hayom.

Jerusalem police arrested three Arab suspects—an adult and two minors—in connection with the attack, and took them in for questioning.
