7 Police Officers Wounded in Jerusalem Terror Stabbing

While rocket attacks from Gaza have died down, that does not mean that terrorists aren't still targeting Israel and her people. The Jerusalem Post's Uri Bollag and Tamara Zieve report that seven police officers were stabbed by a terrorist in Jerusalem today before the attempted murderer was caught:

Police on Thursday detained five family members of the terrorist who perpetrated a stabbing attack in Jerusalem's Armon HaNatziv on Wednesday night, wounding four police officers.

Police units raided the terrorist's house and made the arrests on Thursday morning, after having immediately arrested the terrorist the night before at the scene.

The stabbing attack took place at the entrance to the Oz Police Station in the southern east Jerusalem neighborhood. Police said the attacker climbed over the fence of the police station, approached a 50-year-old border policeman who stood at the entrance and attacked him, lightly injuring him in the head.

A border policewoman who stood nearby reacted immediately and shot at the terrorist and neutralized him...
