JNS.org A haredi man was stabbed several times in the upper torso by an Arab assailant near the Damascus Gate in Jerusalem on Sunday afternoon, Israel Hayom reported.

The man was walking near the Old City walls when he was approached by an Arab man, who grabbed him and stabbed him before fleeing the scene.

Magen David Adom paramedics treated the Jewish man at the scene and transferred him to the Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem. He was considered lightly wounded and was released from the emergency ward several hours later.

Security forces canvassed the area, but made no arrests. The police said they believed the stabbing was nationalistically motivated.
