The latest terror attack in Jerusalem has left one wounded. Arutz Sheva's Ari Soffer reports that a Palestinian terrorist stabbed a Jewish man in the Holy City today:

One person has been wounded in a stabbing attack by an Arab terrorist along Jerusalem's Hanavi'im Street, close to Highway 1.

The attacker, a Palestinian Arab in his twenties from Judea and Samaria, has been arrested.

The victim - a Jewish man in his late twenties - is being treated for a stab wound to his shoulder. Magen David Adom paramedics who treated him at the scene say he was lightly wounded; he has since been transferred to Jerusalem's Shaare Tzedek hospital for further treatment.

Police said the perpetrator was seen by officers "stabbing a Jew and fleeing," discarding the knife nearby.

The officers ran and "caught the terrorist, subdued and arrested him," a police statement said.

It marks the first Arab terror attack this week, and follows a number of attacks and attempted attacks last week.
