JNS.org – A Israeli security guard was stabbed by a Palestinian man at the entrance to Maaleh Adumim on Tuesday. The 60-year-old guard was moderately wounded in the incident and was taken to a nearby hospital for medical treatment, Israel Hayom reported.

According to investigators, a Palestinian man carrying a bag arrived at a checkpoint at the entrance to Maaleh Adumim, a suburb community located east of Jerusalem. The guard asked to examine the bag, at which point the man drew a knife from the bag and stabbed the guard.

The attacker then fled in the direction of a nearby Arab village. Other guards opened fire at him, but he apparently got away unscathed.
