Israeli police officers arrested a 15-year-old Palestinian girl for stabbing a 26-year-old Jewish woman on Wednesday morning near the kever of Shimon HaTzaddik while walking her children to school in the Shimon HaTzaddik (Sheikh Jarrah) neighborhood of Jerusalem.
The local police said the mother was immediately brought to the Hadassah Mount Scopus Medical Center after the stabbing incident.
The children of the victim are not harmed by the suspect who hurriedly escaped after the stabbing incident.
In a follow-up operation policemen arrested the suspect an hour after she committed her crime.
The police noted that in a span of four days, the incident is the third terrorist attack in Jerusalem.
The first attack involves a young man who was stabbed near Damascus Gate in the Old City of Yerushalayim on Shabbos afternoon.
A 16-year-old Palestinian also carried out a car-ramming attack at the Te’enim checkpoint on Monday, wounding a security guard.
