An Israeli woman was wounded in a stabbing attack on Monday morning at the Qalandiya checkpoint in northern Jerusalem.

The terrorist was neutralized and has reportedly been apprehended by security forces.

United Hatzalah EMT Yossi Polishuk, who arrived at the scene, said, "I was at the Neve Yaakov intersection located nearby when I received the notification about the attack and the injured woman who needed treatment."

"As the first EMS responder on the scene, I immediately began treating the woman's injuries. While I was treating her other EMS volunteers and an ambulance arrived and I was told that there were no other injuries."

This is the second stabbing attack in less than twenty-four hours.

On Sunday afternoon, four people were wounded in a stabbing attack at a Tel Aviv hotel.

The victims included three men, two in their 50s and one in his early 70s, and a woman in her early 50s. All of them were lightly wounded.

Police took an 18-year old Arab man suspected in yesterday's attacks into custody. Authorities said he is a resident of the Palestinian Authority who entered Tel Aviv with a permit obtained through a leftist NGO.
