Police have confirmed that the attack on the two Yeshiva students on Monday in the Old City of Jerusalem was a planned ambush, according to a Haaretz report.
As they far too often do, the police originally and incorrectly claimed it was a fight between Arabs and Jews, and not the terror attack that it was.
The four Arabs that ambushed and attacked the students from the Breslov Chassidic “Shuvu Banim” yeshiva have been arrested.
The 45-year-old yeshiva student managed to drag himself to the Kishleh police station with stab wounds in the abdomen, and said he’d been stabbed by Arabs.
The second man, age 32, was also hurt. He suffered wounds to the neck, and had a broken hand. Police determined he had been hit with a blunt instrument.
The attackers were between the ages of 15 and 17.
