Soldier 'Faked' Terrorist Stabbing Attack


A soldier who claimed he was stabbed by three Arab attackers in Jerusalem has admitted he fabricated the entire story.

Earlier this morning, Magen David Adom (MDA) crews treated the soldier and evacuated him to the Hadassah Mount Scopus Hospital after he sustained "stab wounds" which he said were inflicted by three male attackers in Jerusalem's northern neighborhood of Pisgat Ze'ev. However, under questioning the young recruit admitted that he had sustained the light injuries after falling over, and had made up the story about the attack.
