Two Israelis Injured in Palestinian Attack in Jerusalem

An Israeli police officer and a civilian were lightly wounded in an attack in a haredi Orthodox Jerusalem neighborhood.

On Sunday evening, a Palestinian assailant drove his car into an Israeli pedestrian in the Romema neighborhood before exiting the vehicle and stabbing a policeman, according to the Israel Defense Forces.

The assailant, who was later identified as a 21-year-old from eastern Jerusalem, was shot dead at the scene by an Israeli soldier who happened to be nearby.

Magen David Adom treated the victims before they were to the Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem.

Romema is in northwest Jerusalem, near the main entrance to the city.
