An 18-year-old yeshiva bochur was stabbed by a Palestinian man wielding a screwdriver in Yerushalayim today, sustaining moderate wounds to his upper body.
Police converged on the A-Tur neighborhood where the attack took place, but by the time they arrived, the Palestinian terrorist had already fled the scene and police forces launched a manhunt.
The chassidishe bochur was transported to Hadassah Hospital on Har Hatzofim.
The A-Tur neighborhood is located near Har Hazeisim, from where the bochur was returning after davening at the kever of the Sonimer Rebbe zt”l, the Nesivos Shalom, whose yahrtzeit is today. The bochur was walking towards the bus stop on Har Hazesisim when he was attacked.
