The wounded security guard, a 31-year-old Arab Christian resident of eastern Jerusalem, was evacuated to Hadassah Mount Scopus Hospital.

Jerusalem police said the terrorist initially arrived at the crossing between Haim Bar-Lev Boulevard and Sultan Suleiman Street in Jerusalem, next to the Damascus Gate station. She quickly walked toward a haredi man, brandished a knife and tried to stab him several times. The haredi man escaped and avoided injury. Yet the terrorist immediately zeroed in on the light rail security guard and stabbed him in his arm. Police officers subdued the terrorist, and she was taken into custody for questioning.

After the attack, police forces raided the terrorist’s home in Sur Baher, a neighborhood in southeastern Jerusalem.
