The terrorist was shot and killed by a Border Police officer at the scene after stabbing a 25-year-old man. The terrorist was identified as Khaled Samer al-Zaanin, a 14-year-old from the Beit Hanina neighborhood of Jerusalem.
Magen David Adom paramedics responded to the incident and transferred the victim to Shaare Zedek Medical Center for further care.
Spokespeople from the hospital reported that the victim was stable and fully conscious upon arrival.
Hamas's spokesperson for Jerusalem responded to the terrorist attack on Wednesday evening, stating "The stabbing attack in Al-Musrara neighborhood in Jerusalem this evening is a heroic act in a victory for al-Aqsa and for the blood of the martyrs, and it is a natural response to the crimes of the occupation. This operation and what we witnessed today of a heroic run-over operation in Hebron and the wounding of a number of settlers by throwing stones in Qalqilya, reaffirms that our people will continue to resist, and will disturb the occupation and its settlers."
