Israel Police set up roadblocks around Jerusalem Sunday evening, after an unknown Arab assailant stabbed a Jewish pedestrian near the Old City’s Damascus Gate, police told The Algemeiner.

“The assailant stabbed the victim, a man in his early 30s, in the back with a screwdriver, and then fled on foot towards the Haneviim St. area,” according to police spokesman Mickey Rosenfeld.

The victim managed to reach the Jewish Western Wall area and alerted authorities. He was brought to hospital suffering from light to moderate wounds.

Earlier in the day, alert security guards on the capital’s light rail tram apprehended an Arab woman, who was found to be hiding a large knife on her person.
