Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat encouraged Jerusalem residents to continue their normal routines while upping their vigilance after an Arab youth stabbed a female soldier on the Jerusalem light rail Thursday morning.

"I see the attempt to disrupt life in Jerusalem with the utmost gravity," Barkat stated.

"Routine events in Jerusalem will continue as planned and the light rail will continue to operate, serving all residents both Arab and Jewish," the mayor said, after authorities halted northbound service on the light rail for a short period of time after the stabbing.

"I urge residents to continue on with their day, and to be alert for any situation," he said, stressing the sound security on the light rail, as a result of cooperation between police, the security forces and railway guards.
