One person was lightly injured in a stabbing incident that occurred at about 3:30PM on Tuesday, 12 Kislev, in the Har Gilo area near Wallaje Junction. Authorities have not yet determined if the stabbing was an act of terror or criminal in nature.
Magen David Adom reports the incident occurred near the IDF/PA District Coordinating Office near Beit Jala, a PA (Palestinian Authority) area adjacent to Bet Lechem. The 30-year-old victim sustained light facial injuries.
There is an unconfirmed report that the victim, an Israeli male, entered an Arab grocery store and was attacked. The attacker fled the scene.
The victim was transported to Jerusalem’s Hadassah Hospital Ein Kerem, an MDA spokesperson said.
