An Arab terrorist on Saturday stabbed and moderately wounded an Israeli in Hebron and was apprehended by Israeli forces shortly after the attack.

The attack occurred in the afternoon as two Israelis walked from the Cave of the Patriarchs in Hebron to Kiryat Araba. The terrorist walked with his friend and passed in front of the two Israelis and then repeatedly stabbed the victim, a resident of Jerusalem.

The terrorist injured the Israeli in his shoulder and the knife broke inside his back.

Another Israeli passing by fought with the terrorist while the wounded victim ran to the soldiers and called for help.

The victim, Moshe Greenblat, 22, was evacuated to Shaare Zedek hospital in Jerusalem while the troops apprehended the terrorist shortly after the attack.

The incident occurred after Israeli police detained an Arab woman at the Damascus Gate at the entrance to the Old City of Jerusalem after she pulled out a knife and flashed it in front of them, apparently the beginning of a stabbing attack.

The woman was said to be in her 50s.
