21-Jun-15: Sunday morning Jerusalem stabbing

Israel National News, Sunday at 10:45 am
A border policeman has been left seriously wounded after being stabbed by an Arab terrorist in Jerusalem, close to the Old City's Damascus Gate. Security forces and paramedics are already at the scene. Initial reports suggest the victim is in critical condition, and paramedics are currently attempting to resuscitate him. Reports also suggest the terrorist has been "neutralized," although it is unclear at this point whether he was killed, wounded or arrested.
The Jerusalem Post adds (just before 11 this morning) that the attacker, an 18-year-old from somewhere in the West Bank, was shot at the scene and was in critical condition. The victim, about 20 years old, received emergency treatment at the scene of the stabbing and was rushed from there to Jerusalem's Shaarei Zedek Medical Center.
