The officers arrived in the area with the firefighting team that was deployed to extinguish a burning car. Clashes erupted following their stabbing, leaving two residents lightly injured. The assailant, a 23-year-old from the Palestinian-majority Jabel Mukaber neighborhood in eastern Jerusalem, was arrested at a relative’s house following a three-hour manhunt.
This was the second incident of stabbing in Israel over the weekend. The first involved a 35-year-old man who was lightly injured while jogging on David Remez Street in Jerusalem on Saturday. After being stabbed, the victim luckily managed to repeatedly fight off the 28-year-old Palestinian assailant, who was then shot and seriously wounded by police at the scene.
