Another Israeli stabbed in Jerusalem

Jerusalem – Israeli police say an attacker has stabbed an Israeli in Jerusalem. They identified the attacker as an Arab man without providing details.

Police spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld says Thursday’s attack took place in the French Hill neighbourhood of Jerusalem and that troops have apprehended the attacker. Medical services say the victim was lightly wounded.

The stabbing was the latest in a series of attacks against Israelis in recent years.

The unrest began about three weeks ago at a sensitive holy site in Jerusalem. It later spread to Arab neighbourhoods of east Jerusalem and to the West Bank.

In all, four Israelis have been killed in stabbings by Palestinian attackers and a roadside shooting in recent days. Five Palestinians, including three of the attackers, have been killed.
