Palestinian stabs Israeli in Jerusalem

23 February 2015, 08:11

Jerusalem - A young Palestinian man stabbed an ultra-Orthodox Jew in Jerusalem on Sunday but the victim's wounds were not life threatening, police and emergency services said.

A statement from police said the stabbing took place between the Old City and the western sector's city hall, with a guard from the municipality apprehending the assailant.

The suspect was an 18-year-old Palestinian illegally in Israel, police said, adding that he was "being taken for questioning".

Police said the victim was stabbed in the stomach with a knife. A spokesperson for Israel's emergency medical services said he was being taken to hospital in light-to-moderate condition.

The motive for Sunday's attack was not clear but it came after a series of knife assaults by Palestinians on Israelis in recent months.

Last month, a knife-wielding Palestinian attacked passengers on a morning rush-hour bus in Tel Aviv, wounding 12 people, before being shot and wounded by a passing prison officer.

In December, a knife-wielding Palestinian wounded two Israeli police officers in Jerusalem's Old City.
