JERUSALEM (JTA) — An Israeli policewoman was stabbed outside the walls of Jerusalem’s Old City.

The officer was stabbed in the hand on Thursday at the Shalshelet Gate, or Chain Gate, near the Western Wall.

The assailant was wrestled to the ground and arrested, police told Israeli media.

The attack, less than a week before the start of the High Holidays, comes a day after an Israeli woman was stabbed by a 14-year-old Palestinian boy near the city of Modiin.
