( Israeli police on Sunday arrested a Palestinian man over a vehicular terror attack that injured four police officers on Saturday in Jerusalem.

The suspect, 31-year-old Fadi Saleh from the Shuafat refugee camp, allegedly deliberately drove his car into a sidewalk at an intersection near the Mount of Olives. The four police officers wounded by the car-ramming attack were evacuated to the Shaare Zedek Medical Center.

Riots broke out in the area following the attack, with several dozen Arabs throwing rocks at Israeli police and paramedics, damaging ambulances in the process. 

Also on Saturday, a Palestinian man in his 20s stabbed an Israeli border policeman in the face and neck near the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron. The attacker was shot and killed, while the policeman was taken to Shaare Zedek Medical Center and was listed in moderate condition.
