Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat spoke out on Saturday night against the suspected terrorist attack that left three police officers injured.

"I want to strengthen the hand of the Israeli police and security forces in their operations to protect the city of Jerusalem in general and in the Arab neighborhoods in particular in keeping the quiet. I spoke with the Jerusalem District Police Commander Chico Adari and I am sure the police will lend a hand and ensure that the attacker will be severely punished. I wish a speedy recovery to all those injured," he said at the scene.

On his way to visit the premises of the attack stones were thrown at Barkat's car. One stone hit the car causing light damage. No injuries were reported.
