Security cameras caught the stabbing attack adjacent to Jerusalem's Mahane Yehuda market on Monday morning, in which two female terrorists aged 14 and 16 stabbed a 70-year-old Arab man, apparently mistaking him for a Jew.

Warning - graphic content:

The video shows the two terrorists armed with scissors after having stabbed the man, who hails from Bethlehem in Judea.

A security guard is seen quickly rushing to the scene, and after a brief standoff during which the leading attacker continues to threateningly approach, he fires at the terrorists one after the other.

The video shows that as he shot the terrorist who was hanging back, another man rushed forward with a chair in an attempt to knock her down and apprehend her. It appears one of the bullets hit his hand, as the 27-year-old was hospitalized with light bullet wounds to the hand.

The Arab man who they stabbed just before the footage starts was hospitalized at Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital after having been stabbed in the head and back.

As for the terrorists, one was killed by the gunfire, while the second one was seriously wounded and evacuated to Shaare Tzedek Hospital where she was brought into the operation room. She had two gunshot wounds to the stomach and was in unstable condition.

Both attackers held blue Israeli ID cards indicating residency status.
