Israeli Security Guard Seriously Injured In Jerusalem Stabbing Attack

JERUSALEM (JTA) — A civilian Israeli security guard was stabbed and seriously injured in a terror attack in the Jewish Quarter of the Old City of Jerusalem.

The victim, reported to be in his 30s, was stabbed several times in his upper body and is in critical condition in Shaare Tzedek hospital in Jerusalem. He was expected to go into surgery as soon as possible.

The stabber, who was first identified as a Turkish national visiting Israel, was later identified as a Palestinian man from a northern West Bank village near Nablus. He was shot and killed at the scene by an Israel Police officer.

Parts of the Old City were closed down after the attack.

The attack comes two days after two soldiers were killed and two left in serious condition after a Palestinian car ramming attack in the West Bank.
