Damascus Stabbing Oren Nahshon

After an Israeli man was stabbed and injured in an attack on Monday evening in the Old City of Jerusalem, police look for the assailant. 

According to officials, the victim said he was stabbedin the back on al-Khaldaya Street in the center of Old City and reached the Austrian Hospice hotel some 300 meters away, where he reported he’d been stabbed and asked for help.

The stabbing victim, said to be in his 60s, was transferred to a local hospital for treatment. Hospital officials described him as stable and conscious.

Police deployed a large number of forces to locate the assailant, who fled the scene after the attack, police spokesperson Luba Samri said.
