After the attempted stabbing attack in Jerusalem on Saturday morning, Kedem Police District commander Chief Superintendent Chaim Shmueli called on parents to take responsibility for their children.
Palestinian media reported that the attacker, who was shot dead by security forces after attempting to stab them, was a 16-year-old from the east Jerusalem neighborhood of Jabel Mukaber.
"Once again we have a youth who apparently decided to carry out an attack. I call on all parents to be alert and responsible for their children and for their behavior, with special attention paid to harmful influences," Shmueli said.
Shmueli also called on citizens to continue to be on alert for terrorists and to report suspicious individuals to the police.
