As the people of Israel prepare to mourn and remember those who have been lost, terror has once again returned to the Holy City. The Times of Israel reports that two elderly women out for a walk were stabbed in the back by masked terrorists:
Two elderly women were stabbed and moderately injured in a suspected terror attack at the Armon Hanatziv promenade in southern Jerusalem, police said Tuesday morning.
Both women were rushed to a local hospital in moderate condition, the Magen David Adom rescue service said.
An MDA spokesperson said the two were in their 80s, and were fully conscious. Police listed their ages in the 70s.
Police said two stabbers, both of whom were masked, fled the scene toward the nearby East Jerusalem neighborhood of Jabel Mukaber.
A spokesperson later said two suspects were caught, terming the incident a “suspected nationalistic attack.”
