Magen David Adom (MDA) medics were notified of the attack at 7:53 am and rushed to the scene; they treated a 19 year-old victim on-site and then transferred him to Shaarei Tzedek Medical Center in Jerusalem for treatment.

The victim was stabbed on the left side of his upper back; MDA has rated his injuries as "moderate." 

The terrorist is still at large; police are scanning the area to find the perpetrator.
