(Israel Hayom/Exclusive to JNS.org) A Nepalese woman was stabbed by a Palestinian terrorist on Sunday while waiting at a bus station in Jerusalem. The terrorist fled the scene.

The woman, a 30-year-old foreign worker living in Israel, sustained moderate injuries to her back and was taken to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem for treatment.

Security forces combed the area for the attacker, ultimately apprehending him at a nearby construction site. The attacker, a 17-year-old Palestinian from the Hebron area, confessed to the stabbing.

Earlier Sunday, another Palestinian terrorist from Hebron stabbed a border policeman in the neck in the Old City in Jerusalem. Abed al-Rahman, 38, came into the Old City through Damascus Gate, and upon noticing a pair of border policemen patrolling the area, he pulled out a knife and stabbed one of them while yelling “Allahu akbar!”

The other policeman shot and killed the attacker. A search of his body yielded another concealed knife. The victim was evacuated by emergency medical personnel who described his condition as light-to-moderate and stable.
