The incident took place on Hagai Street in the Old City of Jerusalem.

A 20-year-old male and a 20-year-old female were wounded in the attack. One of the victims sustained significant wounds and is in fair condition. The other was lightly wounded and is reported to be in good condition.

The terrorist was killed by Rabbi Aviv Tzobari, the Rosh Yeshiva of Ateret Cohanim, according to Arutz 20. The rabbi was taken to the police station. His family said they are very proud of him.

Knife used in the terror attack

Paramedics from United Hatzolah and the Magen David Adom (MDA) emergency medical response service treated the two victims at the scene before they were both taken to nearby Hadassah Mount Scopus Medical Center in the city.

Large police forces were deployed to the scene and continued to operate in the area.

There are unconfirmed reports that a second Arab armed with a knife was arrested shortly afterwards near the scene of the terror attack.
