Palestinian Youth Fails Stabbing Attempt at Jerusalem Bus Stop

A Palestinian youth attempted to stab an Israeli man at a bus stop in eastern Jerusalem.

The failed attack occurred on Sunday afternoon in the Armon Hanatziv neighborhood of eastern Jerusalem.

The would-be attacker fled the scene after attempting to stab an Israeli man waiting at the bus stop, and was caught by Israeli security forces, Israel Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said in a tweet.

The attack came hours after a female Israeli soldier was shot and moderately injured by a sniper at the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron.

The Armon Hanatziv neighborhood was the site of a Rosh Hashana eve rock attack on a car that left a Jewish Israeli dead. The attack touched off the recent wave of Palestinian violence on Israelis.

The neighborhood, also known as East Talpiot, also was the site of a shooting attack that left three dead, including dual American-Israeli citizen Richard Lakin.
