One Israeli was lightly injured in an attempted Palestinian stabbing attack at one of the entrances to Yerushalayim’s Old City tonight, medical officials said.

According to the Magen David Adom (MDA) emergency medical service, an Israeli police officer sustained light wounds to his leg in the incident, which took place near the city’s Lion’s Gate.

The suspected assailant was “neutralized” by Israeli security forces on the spot. His condition was not immediately clear.

Also on Sunday night, a Palestinian terrorist attempted to stab Israel Defense Forces soldiers at the Hussan Junction near the city of Beitar Illit in Judea.

No casualties were reported in the incident and the terrorist was “neutralized,” the IDF said.

On Dec. 28, two Israelis were wounded in a stabbing attack at the Mizmoriya checkpoint near Bais Lechem, just south of Yerushalayim. MDA paramedics treated a 20-year-old woman in serious condition and a 25-year-old man in moderate condition at the scene.

On Nov. 30, terrorists killed three Israelis and wounded six other people in a shooting at the main entrance to Yerushalayim.

Two weeks earlier, Hamas terrorists shot and killed an Israeli soldier and wounded five other members of the security forces near the “tunnel road” checkpoint between Gush Etzion and the capital city.

On Nov. 6, an Israel-American Border Police officer was killed in a terrorist stabbing near Herod’s Gate to Yerushalayim’s Old City. Another officer was moderately wounded in the attack. JNS
