Magen David Adom ambulance evacuates wounded to hospital. (file)

Two elderly Jewish women were stabbed by two Arab terrorists as they walked along a path under the boardwalk in Jerusalem’s Armon HaNatziv neighborhood early Tuesday morning near the Arnona section of the city, which is not far from Arab neighborhoods.

The victims were part of a group of five women who were out enjoying the beautiful spring weather in the capital when the two masked Arabs launched their attack, according to police sources.


Both women were in their 70s and were stabbed in the chest, one stabbed multiple times. The two victims were rushed by paramedics from the Magen David Adom emergency medical response service to Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center. They were both conscious and were listed in fair condition upon admission to the hospital’s Trauma Unit.

Two suspects were tracked down and arrested within a short time after they managed to escape, fleeing in the direction of the Jabel Mukabar section of Jerusalem, according to security sources. Jabel Mukabar has been a terrorist stronghold in the city for months.

  1. How much longer will this be allowed? If zoo cages were compromised and wild animals were randomly attacking pedestrians, wouldn't something be done? How is this different? It must be stopped. Doesn' Bibi know this is costing him?

  2. Israeli official policy needs to change in favour of executing adult perpetrators who carry out these crimes or are caught preparing to do so. Adolescent offenders should be imprisoned for 20 years with no parole. Those inciting these crimes should also be sentenced to equally harsh prison terms. Abbas also needs to face Israeli justice in this regard or at least deprivation of office and banishment. Any organisation inciting such terror ought to have all its assets seized and be closed down,

  3. These so called 'youth' must be tried under the new law making these attacks 'attempted murder'. Since the Jabel Mukabar neighborhood is a well known problem are the PM must seal it off whit check points and extra heavy police presence. It is reall about time the PM and DM got serious about protecting us from these monsters.

  4. I am praying for these elderly women. These are not Arab youth, in the U. S., we call them thugs, gang members, terriost! I call them cowards! What harm could two women walking, enjoying their G.d given beauty of the City? This will only stop, when YESHUA steps on THE TEMPLE MOUNT & DECLARES IT HIS! Then Israel will look for her enemies, and they will be no more! G.d Bless Israel, and the Jewish people! Shalom!

  5. So now that they have been arrested the left provideds them with top shelf legal help, arrange family visits with the Red Cresent and Bibi is anxious to swap them for nothing in return at the behest of Israel's left. At what point to Israeli get serious with terrorists. I can't imagine even "people" like Golda Meir and David Ben Gurion waging anything less than a war of annihilation against terror.

  6. It doesnt matter if they ar YOUTHS or ADULTS they have been taught to hate and are terrorist just like the Nazis. These people are Muslim Nazis and no matter id Israel was Palestine these would be gangs or mobs out to kill Jews. Only in modern times they call Jews Zionist, The word Zionist is a code word for Jews, The Nazis called Jews Zionist also, We forget too fast.. RE READ the History books. RE READ the The Hebron Massacre (August 23, 1929) That was long before Israel.

  7. Yes I totally agree..they need to more tough on these muslims who murder or try to murder the Jewish people…they need to execute them right at the attack or if they catch them later execute them soon after whether they go through with the murder or not..this is the only way this thing is going to slow down.

  8. There are solutions, but Israel is a democracy.
    Despite the fact that Muslims living in Israel have the highest standard of living & freedom than any of 22 Muslim countries worldwide, Muslim clerics are calling to murder infidels. Democracies must stop Muslim clerics calling for murder and martyrdom, otherwise, our democracy will be destroyed from inside out. Look at Europe…

  9. Daniel Paul Gold Every Jews need to carry a weapon like a gun or some bear spray or something that will hopefully stop these evil attackers..also the government needs to up the anti and execute any attacker right away or soon after they are caught..Also they need to up the protection. Maybe as well order all the family of the attacker to leave Israel. As well they need to get the Temple Mount Back. It belongs to Israel and the Jews NOT the muslims-Jerusalem isn't even mentioned once in the koran and over 800 times in the Tenach!!

  10. Be real. That shooting was not justified. The terrorist WAS down and not a threat anymore. I have no problem killing terrorists, but we do live by a moral code that is above doing such things. Even American polic know that shooting a person after they no longer pose a threat is wrong. When police do such things, they need to be charged. WE are better than that.

  11. The shooting wasn't justified? Strange reaction. You confuse things, and the confusion provides precious cover for the murderous stabbing rampages currently confronting innocent Israeli citizens. I suggest a different approach. As standard practice, when a terrorist is down, every soldier should pump 2 or 3 maybe even 4, 5, 6, maybe even 7 rounds in the dead body. Then, due to pre-arrangement with an American pork plant, wrap the dead body in a previously freeze dried dead pig carcase. Then return the body to family. This, or forcefully relocate every Palestinian Israeli unwilling to sign a blood oath of loyality and honor and fidelity to Israel. Outrageous? Certainly, but old ladies getting stabbed with impunity is more outrageous. Something must be done. And soon.

  12. Donald Dineen You cannot set a moral code that is higher than the lowest standards used be the enemy. Protecting our citizens is an obligation that requires flexibility. If one response does not work another should be tried, even if it means punishing innocent relataives of the criminal. When an enemy uses your high moral values for harming our citixens our values should change to insure the safety of citizens.
