Palestinian stabs man in the neck near Jerusalem

A 42-year-old Israeli man was stabbed in the neck Thursday by a Palestinian assailant on the outskirts of Jerusalem, police and rescue officials said. The victim, who was moderately wounded in the late-afternoon attack in the Atarot industrial zone, managed to make his way to a nearby police station after being knifed at a bus stop in the area. The suspected Palestinian attacker fled the scene. The man was rushed to Jerusalem's Sha'are Tzedek Hospital by Magen David Adom paramedics after receiving first aid treatment on the scene. The area in question, which lies adjacent to the West Bank, has been the site of past attacks against Jewish workers.
