A 16-year-old Jerusalem youth was in serious but stable condition Saturday after being stabbed by two Arab terrorists as he walked home from the Shimon HaTzadik neighborhood, east of the Old City.
Police are searching for the terrorists, who stabbed the boy six times in the back around 5 p.m. He was rushed to Hadassah Hospital at Ein Karem.
Terrorists two weeks ago stabbed a yeshiva student near the Shechem Gate in the Old City, and Arabs frequently have thrown stones at the Egged bus which runs through the Shimon HaTzadik neighborhood, according to the ultra-orthodox website LaDa’at.
In another attack in the capital, two firebombs were thrown by Arabs Saturday night in the Jewish neighborhood of Rekess Shlomo, between the Ramot and French Hill neighborhoods. There were no reports of damage or injuries.
IDF troops Saturday morning arrested two Arab youths who were discovered carrying 20 bullets. Friday night they arrested a Hamas terrorist near Hevron.
In the south, Arab terrorists fired at an IDF patrol near the security fence between the central Gaza region and the western Negev. No damage or injuries were reported.
On Friday, five Border Patrol soldiers were lightly injured by stone-throwing Arabs at the weekly protest by Arabs, left-wing Israeli groups and the International Solidarity Movement. The demonstrators were protesting against the construction of the security fence near the village of Bil’in near Ramallah.
In the northern Negev, police arrested several Bedouin on Saturday after an argument broke out over claims to land south of the Yatir Forest.
