Two wounded in stabbing at Damascus Gate

A stabbing attack took place at the Damascus Gate of Jerusalem's Old City on Friday morning.

Two victims were reported as being lightly wounded in the attack, and the terrorist was neutralized.

Magen David Adom (MDA) teams provided medical treatment to the wounded at the site prior to evacuating them to hospital.

Friday's stabbing comes in the shadow of another stabbing the day before at a Rami Levy supermarket in Sha'ar Binyamin, in which 21-year-old Tuvia Yanai Weissman was murdered and 36-year-old Avi Avital was moderately wounded by two 14-year-old Arab terrorists.

Damascus Gate has become a central hot spot for attacks during the current wave of Arab terror that began last September.

A stabbing was prevented at the site on Tuesday, on Monday a 15-year-old female Palestinian Arab was arrested after a knife was found on her by alert security officers, and a shooting attempt by two Arab terrorists took place at the site on Sunday night.

The two on Sunday were shot by security personnel before they were able to inflict any injuries, and one of the assailants was later identified as a Palestinian Authority (PA) Security Force member.

Sunday night's shooting attempt was a repeat of an attack two weeks ago on Wednesday, when three terrorists armed with sub-machine guns, bombs and knives opened fire on security personnel at the Damascus Gate, killing female Border Police officer Hadar Cohen before being eliminated.
