Arab Stabber in Jerusalem, Soldier Fights Attacker in Jaffa
A gang of Arab terrorists attacked a Jewish student early Sunday morning when he got lost on his way to Hebrew University in Jerusalem.
The youth had stopped near a gas station on Derech Yericho (Jericho Way) in the capital at about 2:00 a.m., hoping to get directions to the university's student dormitories on the Mount Scopus campus.
Instead, the young American citizen was stabbed by three Arabs. Magen David Adom paramedics who arrived on the scene told the Hebrew-language Yediot Acharanot newspaper that the youth suffered two deep cuts on his face and "had his throat deeply slashed." He was evacuated to Shaare Tzedek Medical Center in the capital, where he was listed in light-to-moderate condition.
Police are searching for the attackers.
Yafo Terrorist Attempts Attack, Soldier Escapes Injury
A second terror attack occurred hours later near the military court in Yafo (Jaffa) on the Mediterranean coast, when an Arab tried to stab an IDF soldier as he disembarked from a bus at about 8:15 a.m.
According to the report, the attacker charged the 20-year-old soldier with a knife, yelling at him in Arabic. The would-be victim punched him back, and the attacker reportedly fled on foot.
The soldier said he was on his way to his base when he was attacked.
The soldier was unharmed, although his shirt was torn. He reported the incident to police, who began a wide-ranging investigation. Surveillance cameras at the military court are being checked to see if they caught the incident on tape.
Initial information from the investigation confirmed that the attack was most likely fueled by nationalist motives.
