(Israel Hayom/Exclusive to JNS.org) An Israeli Jewish man was moderately wounded Wednesday morning in a stabbing attack carried out by a female Palestinian terrorist in Jerusalem’s Old City. The wounded man was armed and was able to pull out his gun and shoot the terrorist, seriously wounding her.
The attack took place near Lions’ Gate in an area that was also the scene of last Saturday evening’s stabbing attack in which two Israelis were killed. The wounded man in the latest attack, 35, was stabbed in the upper body. He is being treated at Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in Jerusalem.
The terrorist, a 20-year-old woman from the eastern Jerusalem neighborhood of Sur Baher, was also transported to Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center for treatment. She was struck by bullets in her upper body.
Later on Wednesday, an Arab terrorist stabbed an Israel Defense Forces soldier in the southern town of Kiryat Gat. According to reports, the terrorist stole the soldier’s weapon and then holed up in a nearby building, before being shot dead by police. The soldier was lightly wounded.
