Police have released from custody two Arab youths detained this morning in connection to a terrorist stabbing attack, after ascertaining that the pair were not in fact involved in the attack.

A citywide manhunt is still on in Jerusalem for the terrorists who carried out the attack earlier Tuesday morning, which left two elderly Jewish women moderately wounded.

The latest stabbing attack to hit the Israeli capital - which comes amid an apparently lull in Arab terrorism - was particularly shocking in that the two young Arab terrorists specifically targeted a group of elderly women in the Armon Hanatziv neighborhood, stabbing them multiple times before fleeing the scene.

The two victims are currently hospitalized in stable condition.
