BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) -- An Israeli youth was reportedly stabbed and lightly injured in the occupied East Jerusalem neighborhood of al-Tur on Thursday afternoon, Israeli police said, with Israeli forces searching the area for a suspect.

According to Israeli police spokesperson Luba al-Samri an 18-year-old Israeli was leaving a Jewish cemetery at the Mount of Olives when an unidentified youth stabbed him with a screwdriver in the neck and back before fleeing the scene.

The Israeli youth took a bus to a nearby police station to report the incident, before being transferred to a hospital for treatment.

Al-Samri said that police were still looking for the suspect.

Stabbing attacks have become more frequent since the beginning of a wave of unrest in October which has spread across the occupied Palestinian territory and Israel. During this time period, some 32 Israelis have been killed by Palestinians and 217 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces and settlers.
