stabbing-old-cityDoctors at Shaare Tzedek Medical Center in Yerushalayim clarified tonight that the 21-year-old bochur who was stabbed by an Arab terrorist armed with a screwdriver earlier in the night is not in life threatening danger, Arutz Sheva reports.

Dr. Ofer Merin, deputy director general of the hospital and head of the trauma unit, told Arutz Sheva about the stabbing of the bochur that occurred in the Old City’s Damascus Gate at around 7 p.m.

“Around an hour ago a youth in his twenties came to us, and said he was stabbed on his way returning back from the Kosel when he arrived at the Damascus Gate,” said Merin. “He came to us with a screwdriver stuck in his upper back, in moderate condition,” added the doctor.

Merin explained that the screwdriver wounded the youth’s right lung, explaining “he underwent initial treatment in the trauma room, and after imagining checks we removed the knife while neutralizing the bleeding area… His condition at the moment is stable with a drain in the chest, and there is no danger to his life,” added the doctor. “He is fully conscious and communicating.”

  1. He’s an American Bucher learning in Israel & was on the way back to Yeshiva after completing the complete Tehilim. B”h he’s in stable condition, he was stabbed in the lungs with a screw driver & air went into his lungs. Please daven for Shaul Yehoshua ben Freida Malkah

  2. Name for Tehillim plesse!

    Just curious, what was he doing in middle of the worst of the worst neighborhoods to be?
    Isn’t that tantamount to suicide?

  3. It’s not considered the most dangerous, there are dozens of armyo people there, and it is next door to the Kosel- I think the Har Nof massacre proved that the whole Israel is dangerous– but we are obviously not going anywhere.

  4. KNOCKING A PERSON AFTER HE GOT STABBED HOW LOW YOU ARE WORSE THAN GRIME AND SLIME IF YOU GOT STABBED YOU WOULD NEVER TALK LIKE THAT WHAT A RASHA YOU ARE A TRUE MUSHCHAS

  5. I’m a relative in Israel. Every day especially Thursday night and Friday night hundreds of people go to the kosel thru shar schem. nothing usually happens instead of criticizing the Bachur criticize the arabs.
