A terrorist carried out a stabbing attack near Jerusalem's Central Bus Station Monday afternoon.

The terrorist entered a store outside the bus station and stabbed two people in the back.

A Border Police officer on his regular patrol saw the stabbing and shot the terrorist.

The victims were evacuated to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in moderate condition. The attacker was taken to the same hospital in serious condition.

Senior Magen David medic Shlomi Pinchas said: "We arrived at the scene and there was a big commotion. The two wounded were lying unconscious and suffering from stab wounds. We provided them with advanced medical care in the field, which included bandages, stopping the bleeding and medication, and we quickly evacuated them to the hospital when they were in moderate condition."

United Hatzalah volunteer EMT Yinon Dahan said: "Together with other volunteers from United Hatzalah, I treated two young people who sustained stabbing injuries. We treated their injuries and our Psychotrauma and Crisis Response Unit treated numerous people for shock who witnessed the incident."

Eyewitness Malka Chitat told Arutz Sheva: "I was in a store near the Central Bus Station near the checkout with a friend. Suddenly a terrorist came with a knife and stabbed someone in the back. We ran away from the store."
