Jew Stabbed in Jerusalem; Mayor Barkat Says He Caught Stabber

A haredi Jewish man was stabbed at Jerusalem's Tzahal Square Sunday, and his condition is moderate. He was receiving treatment from an MDA team before evacuation to hospital.

The man was reportedly stabbed in the stomach.

The stabber, an 18-year-old Arab, was caught by a security guard from nearby Municipal Hall, who held on to him until police arrived.

Mayor Nir Barkat was present on the scene. He said that he and his bodyguard spotted the terrorist and that they both jumped on him. Once they had him under control, they saw that he had stabbed and wounded a man.

A terrorist stabbing attack took place a month ago on a bus in central Tel Aviv, on Begin Road, near Beit Maariv. The terrorist was an Arab man, reportedly from Samaria.

Twelve people were wounded in the stabbing, with 17 receiving treatment from Magen David Adom (MDA). Three were in serious condition, four in moderate condition and five who sustained light injuries. Another seven people were treated for shock

An eyewitness told IDF Radio that two of the wounded were very seriously hurt, having been stabbed "in the brain (and) in the neck."
