An axe-wielding Arab man approached a group of Border Police officers near Damascus Gate in Jerusalem's Old City on Wednesday, yelling and attempting to attack the security forces.

While the officers worked to neutralize the suspect, he managed to stab one Border Police officer and lightly wound him in the leg.

Security forces arrested the suspect.
