An Israeli-Arab man was stabbed in the ultra-Orthodox neighborhood of Mea She’arim in Jerusalem Tuesday morning, approximately one hour after a terrorist killed Evyatar Borovsky at a northern West Bank junction.

According to Israel Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld, despite the close chronology of the terror attack and the Jerusalem stabbing of the unidentified man, the two incidents are presently considered unrelated.

“We believe there’s no connection between the terrorist attack at Tapuah Junction and [the attack in Mea She’arim], which is considered to be a criminal or local matter, and not a retaliation attack,” said Rosenfeld.

He added that the victim of the Jerusalem attack was hospitalized and is in moderate-to- serious condition, and that Jerusalem Police are on a heightened alert following Borovsky’s murder.
