JNS.org – A 60-year-old Jewish man was moderately wounded in a stabbing attack outside of the Lion’s Gate entrance to the Old City of Jerusalem on Monday night.

Israeli police said that the victim was stabbed in the upper torso by the terrorist, who then fled the scene.

“The man was treated on site by Magen David Adom paramedics and rushed to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in light-to-moderate condition,” said Israel Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld shortly after the attack, the Jerusalem Post reported.
