A Breslav chasid, about 20, has been stabbed in an attack by an Arab in Jerusalem Thursday. The chasid was coming back from praying at the grave of Shimon HaTzadik.
Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said two suspects were arrested following the incident.
The attack is the latest in a series of terrorist stabbing attacks in Jerusalem. Last month, an Israeli soldier was seriously wounded in a stabbing attack on Jerusalem’s light rail line.
In another incident this month, a haredi middle aged man was wounded by an axe-wielding Arab assailant.Jewish Press News Briefs
