A 17-year-old boy arrived near the Western Wall after he was stabbed at the Chain Gate of the Old City of Jerusalem.

Magen David Adom (MDA) medics and paramedics treated the teenager at the scene, and evacuated him to Hadassah Ein Kerem Medical Center in mild to moderate condition.

"The wounded man arrived at the tunnel near the Western Wall conscious, with a stabbing wound to his body. He told us that he was stabbed near the Chain Gate and ran towards the Western Wall. We provided medical treatment that included stopping the bleeding and dressing the wound, and evacuated him in light and stable condition for further treatment at the hospital," said MDA medics Yehuda Zand and Baruch Weissman.

The police have determined that it was a terrorist stabbing attack and that the attacker has been arrested. The suspect has been identified as a 14-year-old resident of the Shu'afat neighborhood of Jerusalem.
