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.
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.
