Two Arab terrorists stabbed two women in their 80s in Jerusalem's Armon Hanatziv neighborhood on Tuesday morning.

Magen David Adom paramedics treated the victims and evacuated them to Sha'arei Tzedek Hospital. They are both in moderate condition with wounds to their backs and limbs.

The incident occurred while five older women were walking by the Haas Promenade. Two assailants with their faces covered suddenly attacked the group and stabbed the two elderly women before running away.

Shlomi Tedgi, a senior MDA medic, said, "We saw two elderly women, about 80 years old, lying on the dust by the promenade. They were fully conscious and suffered from stab wounds - one in her limbs and her upper body and the other in her upper body.

"They talked and interacted with us," he continued. "We gave them field medical treatment an evacuated them to the hospital. They were in moderate but stable condition."

Security forces set up roadblocks and launched a massive search of the area in order to find the perpetrators. Shortly afterwards police announced the arrest of two suspects believed to have carried out the attack, but the men were released afterwards after it was determined that they were not involved in the attack.
