Stabbing Attack Reported Near the Western Wall in Jerusalem


A 34-year-old female police officer was stabbed in the Old City of Jerusalem Thursday afternoon, in an apparent terror attack.

The wounded officer is said to be in light condition, and is fully conscious.

MDA emergency first responders were dispatched to the scene of the attack, and provided first aid to the wounded officer.

Other officers at the scene reportedly overpowered the terrorist and took him into custody.

“Near the Chain Gate [Shaar HaShalshelet] there was a wounded woman walking around, fully conscious, suffering from a light stab wound in her arm,” said MDA paramedic Yaniv Yaffe.

“I provided medical treatment, including bandaging [the wound], and by this point, she no longer required emergency evacuation to a hospital. The terrorists was neutralized by security forces at the scene.”
