Terrorists Nabbed in Jerusalem Stabbing Attack

Yesterday Stand for Israel reported on the stabbing that broke the recent calm in Jerusalem's Old City. Today, The Times of Israel reports that Israeli authorities have arrested the terrorists responsible for this heinous act:

A Palestinian resident of Jerusalem’s Old City was arrested early Tuesday on suspicion of being an accomplice in a stabbing attack that moderately injured an Israeli man there the night before.

The 18-year-old will be brought before the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court later on Tuesday for a remand hearing. He will likely face charges of aiding a terrorist.

The suspected assailant, an 18-year-old Palestinian, was arrested late Monday night hours after he fled the scene of the attack.

According to police, the suspect, a resident of the West Bank, admitted during questioning to stabbing the Israeli man in the back on al-Khaldaya Street, near the Lions’ Gate.

Israel Police spokesperson Luba Samri on Monday said that officers found a knife at the scene.

The victim, said to be an ultra-Orthodox man in his 60s, told officials that after he was stabbed he walked some 300 meters to the Austrian Hospice to get help. He was then taken to Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center for treatment. Hospital officials described him as stable and conscious.
