Download PDF for this date

Police are still searching for the assailant who stabbed a yeshiva student Friday in the Moslem Quarter of the Old City.

At least 150 Arab suspects were arrested for questioning, but all have been released.

The victim, Daniel Robins, 31, was recovering from a superficial back wound at the Hadassah Medical Center in Ein Kerem.

He was attacked while walking with his baby son Yishai from the Yeshiva Atara Leyoshna to a nearby grocery store.

Robins, who was armed, fired his pistol into the air to attract help and contacted the police headquarters on his walkie-talkie radio. He was swiftly evacuated by ambulance as police closed the Old City gates and began arresting Arabs.
