A police officer was stabbed and injured in an alleged terror attack in the Old City of Jerusalem near the Shalshelet gate, according to police.

The perpetrator was arrested at the scene. The medic who offered first aid to the injured officer said she sustained a light injury in her hand and is fully responsive.

Known in English as Chains Gate, also known as David’s Gate, is near the Western Wall.

A stabbing attack in August at the same site injured a police officer and a passerby. The two attackers were shot and later died from their injuries.
