Yesterday's stabbing attack, on two orthodox Jews, took place at approx. 15:13 local time on the Old City's Haggai street which has witnessed many stabbing attacks in the past.
The attacker had been observed by several local citizens, who had noticed that he had sought out his victims, following them for a short distance before attacking them both from behind.
During his escape attempt, and being cornered by Israeli security forces, he turned on a policeman stabbing him as well before being shot dead.
