From Israel National News this (Tuesday) afternoon:
A terrorist stabbed a security guard at the entrance to the city of Maaleh Adumim, east of Jerusalem, Tuesday. The guard suffered moderate to severe wounds. He fired at the terrorist but apprently failed to hit him. The attacker ran away toward the village of Azariyeh. Magen David Adom medics gave the guard initial care and took him to Hadassah Har Hatzofim (Mt Scopus) hospital. Large police and Border Police forces are combing the area.
Times of Israel's account expands on this:
Three men from an Arab village near Ma’ale Adumim are arrested on suspicion of stabbing an Israeli man in his 60s at the entrance to the West Bank city... There were three private security guards at the checkpoint where the incident occurred. According to one of the guards, they noticed the Palestinian man loitering at the junction, looking ill at ease, before he decided to approach. The guards asked him to present an ID, at which point the attacker pulled out a knife and stabbed one of guards, named Avi, in his torso. The victim, in his 60s, was fully conscious when he was brought to the hospital. The other two guards opened fire, but failed to hit the perpetrator, who fled into Azaria, and adjacent village.
