At the Shivtei Yisrael light-rail stop in Jerusalem on Wednesday night, a stabbing attack left a 25-year-old man with minor injuries.
The terrorist at the railway stop was eliminated by a Border Police officer who was present.
At the incident, Eldad Bar Kochba reported, “The terrorist pulled a knife and rushed at someone. I raced over to him, kicked him in the face, and took the knife from him.
The police arrived and shot him successfully. He was a teenage or young adolescent lad. The terrorist was a 14-year-old resident of Jerusalem’s Beit Hanina area, according to a later police report.
Dr. Shlomo Gensler, a volunteer physician with United Hatzalah, recalled: “I treated a man who had been stabbed in the back initially; he was then taken to Shaare Zedek hospital.
At the moment, his condition is described as steady and moderate. The United Hatzalah Psychotrauma and Crisis Response Unit handled a number of patients due to the nature of the tragedy.
“When we arrived at the train station on Shimon Hatzadik Street, we saw a man of approximately 25 years old, fully conscious, with stab wounds on his upper body,”
paramedics Elad Rozmarin and Sarah Kapah of the MDA recalled.
He received life-saving care, and we transported him to the hospital in a stable state.
