2 Israeli teens stabbed in Jerusalem, Palestinian suspect arrested

May 24, 2015 9:54 A.M. (Updated: May 24, 2015 6:13 P.M.)
JERUSALEM (Ma'an) -- Two Israeli teenagers were allegedly stabbed and injured by a 19-year-old Palestinian inside the Old City of Jerusalem overnight Saturday, an Israeli police spokesman told Ma'an.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said that the stabbing took place late Saturday night as two Israeli boys aged 17 were making their way to the Western Wall.

The two sustained moderate wounds and were evacuated to Hadassah Medical Center in Ein Karem neighborhood.

Israeli police identified the suspected attacker using CCTV images, and arrested the 19-year-old Palestinian at his home.

Police reportedly found a knife believed to have been used in the attack in his home.

There have been a spate of attacks on Israeli military and civilians in recent months, largely in the wake of Israeli activities across the occupied Palestinian Territories, including last summer's offensive on Gaza which left more than 2,200 Palestinians dead.

On Wednesday, Israeli forces shot and killed a Palestinian in the al-Tur neighborhood east of the Old City after he allegedly attempted to run over border guard officers with his vehicle, leaving two moderately injured.

In the six months to the end of February, the UN reported that 10 Israelis were killed in Palestinian attacks, while 17 Palestinians were killed by Israeli forces and settlers across the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

Thousands of Palestinians were injured by Israeli forces in the same period.
