Jerusalem, 7 October, 2015 (TPS) -- An 18-year-old female Muslim terrorist stabbed a 36-year-old Israeli in his upper body on Wednesday morning, October 7, near the Lion’s Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem.

The victim, who was lightly to moderately wounded and treated at the scene before being taken to hospital, managed to shoot and neutralize his attacker. She was taken to Hadassah Ein-Karem hospital in serious condition.

According to Israeli police, the terrorist managed to pass through security before carrying out the attack.

Immediately after the attack, police evacuated Jews from the Temple Mount. Muslims who were there rushed to the scene of the attack, shouting and cursing, according to a group that was visiting the Mount.

Israel had restricted Palestinian access to the Mount and to the Old City for two days in the wake of last week’s terror attacks in Jerusalem and surroundings that claimed the lives of four civilians. Wednesday’s attack comes after police ended the ban earlier in the morning.
