For the second time in less than a week, a Palestinian Arab terrorist — this time a teenage girl — stabbed an Israeli Jew at the Lion’s Gate entrance to the Old City of Jerusalem.

An unidentified 18-year-old Palestinian Arab female attacker stabbed the 25-year-old male victim in the back after she sneaked up behind him Wednesday morning at around 10:30 am, Israel Police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld said.

An armed Israeli man who was passing nearby immediately neutralized the terrorist. “The Israeli man responded quickly by drawing his weapon and shooting her,” Rosenfeld said.

The area was cordoned off by police and a search was launched for other possible terrorists in the area.

The stabbing victim was treated at the scene by paramedics before being evacuated to a hospital in the capital. He is listed in fair condition and is conscious.

The terrorist was also taken to a city hospital and is listed in serious condition. Police are examining the possibility that she may have been operating as part of a terror cell, according to Rosenfeld.

On Saturday night, a 19-year-old Palestinian Arab stabbed and shot to death two rabbis, and wounded the wife and baby son of one of them, also near the Lion’s Gate.

The wounded rabbi’s wife ran down an alley to summon help – with a knife still in her shoulder – while the terrorist continued shooting into a crowd of tourists.

The murderer, allegedly a member of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist organization, was shot and killed by an Israeli police officer.

Just a few hours later, a 15-year-old Jewish boy was stabbed by another Palestinian Arab terrorist as he walked down the street a few blocks away from the Old City walls.

Israeli police spotted the terrorist with the knife still in his hand and shot and killed him.

  1. I'm surprised the US State Dept hasn't complained that using a gun to subdue the terrorist is a disproportionate response. After all, the terrorist only had a knife. They certainly will complain if the terrorist dies and the victim lives. It won't be fair!

  2. The incitement of Moslem terror and uproar everywhere are these days spreading from one word-corner to another. The bloodshed generated from IS upheld territory moves along Moslem immigrant lines to Europe. Today cities like Paris, Manchester, Berlin, Stockholm get the medicine long held only for Israel. The liberals and socialists in the EU are hostile to the Israeli policy towards Arab terrorism. Their appeasement attitude pleasing Moslems are not going to help Europe.

  3. The US State Department has its hands full justifying why it bombed a hospital run by Doctors Without Borders in Afghanistan, killing 22 people and wounding others. Its claim that coordinates were given by the Afghans and that terrorists were hiding inside and staging weapons there is not being deemed a justification by the UN and other countries. Wait a minute! I've heard this before….. but it was the US that was saying it wasn't justification…. I would ask how Obama feels wearing Israel's shoes, but he couldn't even begin to fill them. And at least Israel was defending herself. The US has no business being in Afghanistan now.

  4. Jackie Rozell – You continue to shw everyone how insane you are! Your hatred of President Obama is now beyond the pale! This article is about terrorists trying to kill Israelis and noting else. The fact that you need to discuss Obama shows you need to be locked away in a mental institution before you are a harm to others!

  5. These people are sick . . . curious how the New York Times will report this one… I can see the headline now — "Jew stabbed as knife in Palestinian girl's hand thrusts itself into him. Jewish Passerby guns the Palestinian girl down"

  6. This awful terror must be stopped. The government should quickly pass a law allowing the army or the police to shoot an attacker, when caught in the act, immediately, no questions asked. Then the army should round up all of the attackers family, bull doze all of their homes and businesses, and deport every one of them to Iran or Saudia Arabia (just so long it is out of Israel). Only an extreme measure like that will cause a lone wolf or copycat terrorist to think twice knowing the effect their crazy act would have on their immediate and extended families. It might also cause families who may have a concern about a certain family member, to alert the Israeli police or army thereby allowing them to thwart any act of terror before it occurs. I am not usually a proponent of extreme measures, but this could get out of hand (even more than it is today) very quickly absent a most severe response.

  7. Nary a word from our "peace partners" condemning the stabbings and murders of the Rabbi's wife and the man who got himself killed trying to help. Instead posters have been put up celebrating the "martyrs." Expect Abbas to come up with statements about Israeli aggression. Perhaps he will offer his condolences to the family of the terrorists. Why are we giving the Palestinian Authority aid when Abbas continues to incite violence?
