Paramedics provided medical treatment to the young man approximated to be about 21-years-old who was in moderate but stable condition following a stab wound to his upper body.

He was taken to Hadassah University Medical Center in Jerusalem's Ein Kerem for treatment and was later listed as being in light condition.

According to Israel Police, the 30-year-old terrorist was apprehended by a nearby security guard until officers could arrive at the scene.

On Saturday, a Palestinian terrorist carried out a car-ramming attack on troops manning a checkpoint near Hawara, south of Nablus and was shot dead by soldiers. One soldier was lightly wounded in the leg in the attack.

Earlier in the day, a 26-year-old Palestinian man was shot and killed by police in Jerusalem’s Tzahal Square opposite the Old City, after charging two officers with a knife.

The Jerusalem attack was the second knife assault by a Palestinian terrorist since Wednesday, when two attackers stabbed to death Rabbi Reuven Birmacher, 45, and Ofer Ben Ami, 40, near the Old City’s Jaffa Gate.
