The Palestinian violence against Jews in Israel continues with stabbings every day. This case is really shocking because you see little boys attacking a security guard. Who teaches their children to do this? These two young boys are cousins and undoubtedly haters of Israel. One of the boys died later from a gunshot wound and the second is in the hospital. This vicious cycle continues…violence is not the answer but who knows when it will stop. I just know that if I lived in Israel I would make sure a gun was always near.
Two Arab youths stabbed a security guard for the light rail in the northeastern Jerusalem neighborhood of Pisgat Ze’ev on Tuesday, police said. Minutes later, a stabbing attack was thwarted near Damascus Gate.
The security guard, who was moderately wounded in the attack, managed to fire his weapon toward the two attackers, wounding one, an 12-year-old boy.
Passengers on the light rail subdued the second attacker, who is 13, until police officers arrived at the scene and took him into custody.
A Palestinian minor is detained by Israeli security after two Palestinians, aged 12 to 13, stabbed a security guard on a Jerusalem light-rail train:
According to Palestinian sources, the two attackers were cousins, Moawiyah and Ali Alkam. One is from the Shuafat refugee camp and the other from nearby Beit Hanina.
The victim suffered stab wounds to the upper body, according to the Magen David Adom first-aid service.
The guard’s condition was stable, according to the paramedics on the scene. He was evacuated to the city’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center for further treatment.
The attacker who had been shot by the guard was also treated by paramedics before he was evacuated to Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital, police said. He was in serious condition, unconscious and on a ventilator, the hospital said.
The two assailants were residents of East Jerusalem, one from Beit Hanina and the other from Shuafat, police spokeswoman Luba Samri said.
“The swift and determined response by the light rail guard and the passengers prevented the injury of other innocent people,” said Avi Cohen, the captain of the nearby police station.
