An Arab man in his forties was in moderate condition on Thursday after being stabbed in the stomach by a Jewish youth in the Jerusalem neighborhood of Ramot Eshkol, near the Rene Cassin school.
The wounded man was evacuated to the capital's Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital.
The stabber, a 16-year-old, turned himself in to the police later Thursday afternoon, claiming that he was attacked by the Arab man prior to stabbing him.
The offender turned himself in after initially fleeing the scene. Police had earlier scanned the area searching for him.
