13-Year-Old Israeli Boy Stabbed While Riding Bicycle — Palestinian Teen Killed

A 13-year-old Israeli boy riding his bike was critically injured in a stabbing attack in Jerusalem allegedly by 13- and 15-year-old Palestinian assailants.

The teen and a second victim, in his early to mid-20s, are in serious condition following the Monday afternoon attack in the northern Jerusalem community of Pisgat Zeev, Israel Police reported. The younger suspected attacker was shot by Israel Police and died, while the other suspect was arrested. They are brothers from eastern Jerusalem, according to Palestinian reports.

The attack came less than an hour after an Israeli Border Police officer was injured in a stabbing attack outside the National Police Headquarters, also in northern Jerusalem, near the border between western and eastern Jerusalem. The assailant, a female identified by Israel’s Channel 2 as a resident of eastern Jerusalem, was shot in the stomach by the injured officer and seriously wounded. Police arrested an alleged accomplice at the scene, Channel 2 reported.

It is the same place that a yeshiva student was stabbed in the neck by a Palestinian assailant on Oct. 8.

The attacks came hours after Israel Police officers shot and killed an Arab man in the Old City of Jerusalem after he attempted to stab a policeman.
