Two Jews lightly wounded in Jerusalem stabbing


(JTA) — Two Jewish men sustained minor injuries after being stabbed outside a religious seminary in eastern Jerusalem.

Magen David Adom paramedics rushed to the scene on Friday to treat the wounded men: a 24-year-old who sustained a back injury and a 21-year-old who was wounded in the head, the emergency service said.

The attack occurred at the Beit Orot yeshiva near the Mount of Olives. According to the news site Ynet, the victims said their attackers were Arabs. The report did not say how many suspected perpetrators were involved.

The victims were evacuated to Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem as security forces began searching for the attackers near the scene of the incident.

Two days earlier, five people were killed in an attack perpetrated by two Palestinian terrorists inside a synagogue in western Jerusalem.
