The policeman is being treated at Hadassah Medical Center, and the policewoman is at Shaare Zedek Medical Center, both of which are located in Jerusalem.

 

The attack took place shortly after 7:30am. The terrorist apparently approached from the direction of Damascus Gate when he spotted the two members of the police. He followed them and stabbed them multiple times with a knife. Police spokeswoman Luba Samri said that the policewoman, who was originally reported to be 19 years old, was stabbed in the neck.
