JERUSALEM (Ma’an) — A Palestinian suspect on Friday stabbed two Israeli border policemen in East Jerusalem’s Old City, police said.
One officer, 19, was stabbed in the neck and the other, 35, in the hand near the Lions Gate.
The suspect fled the area and police are currently investigating the incident. Checkpoints were set up in the Old City and nearby areas following the attack.
