Two Haredi young men and a Border Guard officer were wounded lightly in a stabbing attack very close to Damascus Gate in the old city of Jerusalem Saturday afternoon.
The Arab attacker, 17, first stabbed the two men, 18 and 20, and fled the scene running. Police and Border Guard officers gave chase and followed him into a residential building on Hagai Street. They confronted the terrorist and one of the officers sustained a light stabbing wound. The terrorist was then shot dead.
The three wounded men were evacuated to Hadassah Ein Karem and Shaare Zedek hospitals.
