An Israeli, about 22 years old, was moderately wounded Wednesday evening in a stabbing attack at the Shivtei Yisrael light-rail stop in Jerusalem. The 14-year-old terrorist was eliminated by a Border Police officer at the light-rail stop.

United Hatzalah volunteer physician Dr. Shlomo Gensler related: "I provided initial treatment to a man who was stabbed in his back, after which he was transported to Shaare Zedek hospital. His condition is currently defined as moderate and stable. Due to the nature of the incident, several people were treated by United Hatzalah's Psychotrauma and Crisis Response Unit."

MDA Paramedics Elad Rozmarin and Sarah Kapach said: "When we arrived at the train station on Shimon Hatzadik Street, we saw a 25-year-old man fully conscious with a stab wound in his upper body. We provided him with life-saving medical treatment and evacuated him to hospital in moderate condition."

EMT Elazar Ze'evi added, "I was near the scene, and I rushed to the incident. I saw the wounded victim lying on the sidewalk near the platform, fully conscious with stab wounds as he was reporting what happened to his family over the phone. We lifted him onto a stretcher, and we transferred him to an MDA intensive care ambulance team, who quickly arrived at the scene and removed him to the hospital in moderate condition.

The wounded victim was brought to Shaare Zedek Medical Center.

Trauma unit director Dr. Alon Shwartz stated: "The wounded victim, approximately 22, arrived fully conscious and in stable condition with a stab wound in his upper body. After an initial evaluation and imaging tests, he was transferred for continued hospitalization and monitoring.

Due to the attack, there are delays in the Jerusalem light rail, and it ends its service at the Damascus Gate stop.
