Two Border Police officers were stabbed on Friday morning in Jerusalem's Old City near the Lions Gate, in a suspected terrorist attack.
The policemen suffered light injuries, one to the neck and the other to the hand. They were taken for treatment at the Shaare Zedek Medical Center, Jerusalem.
Police said the incident occurred after morning prayers on the Temple Mount, when an unidentified assailant attacked one officer with a knife and stabbed him in the neck. A second policeman fought off the attacker, who fled.
Police were sweeping the area in attempt to locate the attacker.
Jerusalem District Police Commander Moshe Edri, who arrived at the scene of the attack, said police are treating the incident as a terrorist attack, vowing that "The Jerusalem police will lay its hands on the terrorist."
