An Arab woman from east Jerusalem stabbed a Border Patrol officer next to the police station in east Jerusalem around lunchtime on Thursday, police reported.

National Police Spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said the Border Patrolman was lightly injured and was taken to Shaare Tzedek hospital for treatment.

Rosenfeld said police arrested the woman at the scene and that she does not appear to be a member of any organized terror group and that the attack is most likely a sporadic incident that she carried out on her own.
