An Arab attacker tried to stab a woman in downtown Jerusalem this afternoon, according to testimony given to Israeli police. The woman was unharmed and the attacker fled the scene.

The police are currently interviewing the target of the alleged attack.

If confirmed, it would mark the second attempted stabbing attack in Jerusalem today, and the third terror attack in total. 

Earlier this afternoon a stabbing attack  was thwarted at the entrance to Jerusalem near the Har Homa neighborhood.

That was preceded by an ambush on IDF forces in northern Samaria. In that incident soldiers escaped harm, firing back and eliminated the two terrorists.
