Police Officer Stabbed with Screwdriver in Jerusalem

Earlier today in Jerusalem’s Old City, a police officer was stabbed in the head and another was lightly wounded by the same assailant.

The Times of Israel reports:  

The attacker approached a group of officers near the Austrian Hospice in the Muslim Quarter of the Old City. As he got close to them, he pulled out a screwdriver and attacked the officers, stabbing one in the head and the other in the upper body, police said.

In response, the officers opened fire, shooting the assailant.

According to police, he was a 21-year-old Palestinian man from the Palestinian village of Bayt Surik, northwest of Jerusalem, who entered Israel without a permit.

Please pray for the swift recovery of these police officers, and “pray for the peace of Jerusalem” (Psalm 122:6).
