Terror attack at Lions' Gate
The 60-year-old Jewish who was stabbed is in moderate condition; after a police search, an 18-year-old was found who admitted to carrying out the attack.

A Jewish man was stabbed in his upper back outside the Lions' Gate at the entrance to the Old City of Jerusalem on Monday night.  



The man is a 60 year old ultra- Orthodox yeshiva student. Paramedics gave the man first aid. He was evacuated to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem, where he is conscious and stablized in moderate condition.


After a three-hour search, the terrorist was found hiding in one of the Old City's alleyways. He is an 18-year-old from the West Bank. In a preliminary interrogation he admitted carrying out the attack.  


According to the man, he was stabbed in an alley not far from the Old Cite gate, and ran to find security forces to help him.

This attack comes at the heels of a similar stabbing attack on route 443. The two female terrorists in that incident were arrested. The day before, a brother and sister pair attempted to carry out a stabbing attack at Qalandiya checkpoint north of Jerusalem, but were shot to death by private security.
