At around 15:15, a terrorist (a 17-year-old Palestinian) arrived at a business on Jaffa Street near the Central Bus Station in Jerusalem and began stabbing two civilians who were inside a business on the street.
Border police officers who were at the scene during routine security activities noticed the incident, sought contact, and fired at it, thus neutralizing it and preventing further civilians from being injured. As a result of the stabbing attack, two civilians needed medical treatment and were evacuated to the hospital.
Many police forces arrived at the scene and began investigating and searching for more suspects in the area. As part of the operation, two more suspects were located and taken for questioning. The Jerusalem District Commander recently conducted a situation assessment during which he assigned the investigation to the Central Unit of the Jerusalem District.
