After a week of relative quiet in Jerusalem, more attacks have taken place
, with 2 of the culprits being just 12 to 13 years old:
Within a few hours on Tuesday afternoon, there were three terrorist attacks in Jerusalem and area.
Two attacks in Jerusalem occurred within minutes of each other after 12:00 in the afternoon.
In the first attack, at roughly 12:30 p.m., a security guard was stabbed in the upper torso at a Jerusalem light rail station in the Pisgat Ze’ev neighborhood.
According to Police spokeswoman Luba Samri, the guard was accosted by two Palestinian minors, ages 12 and 13, one of who stabbed him with a knife before the guard shot and disarmed him.
“Passengers on the train took control of the second attacker until the rapid arrival of police,” said Samri.
The shot assailant was seriously injured.
Pat Station Commander, Chief Superintendent Avi Cohen praised the security guard and train passengers for their quick actions.
“The rapid determination of the guard and tram passengers prevented more innocent people from being harmed,” he said in a statement.
The unidentified security guard was treated at the scene by Magen David Adom paramedics before being transferred to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in fair condition, Sami said.
Minutes later, a 37-year-old terrorist wielding a knife charged two security guards at Damascus Gate in Jerusalem’s Old City.
Samri said one of the guards shot him, leaving him in critical condition. He later died of his wounds.
Kedem Police District commander Chief Superintendent Chaim Shmueli praised the security guards for their quick actions and emphasized that the capital will remain on a heightened level of security.
Later on Tuesday afternoon at around 3:00 p.m., a Palestinian man with a knife was shot dead by security forces after he allegedly ran toward Border Police officers screaming "Allahu akhbar" (god is great) southeast of Jerusalem.
The incident occurred near a junction south of Ma'aleh Adumim in the West Bank, which lies on the outskirts of the Israeli capital.
So again we have juvenile offenders running amok, whose parents are clearly unsuited to raise them, and should have custody revoked. Once again, all these barbarians are making the city unsafe.
