Palestinian stabs Jewish man in Jerusalem, Hamas praises attack

(Ynet) A 32-year-old Jewish man was stabbed in his back by a Palestinian with screwdriver in Jerusalem Sunday evening and sustained light to moderate wounds. Police said the man continued walking after the stabbing, until he reached a Border Guard patrol and reported the attack.

Police spokeswoman Luba Samri said the man was stabbed in his back with a screwdriver, wielded by an assailant who "apparently is Arab." Hamas has praised the stabbing, saying it was the "natural response" to Israel's crimes. Similar responses were issued by the terror group after last week's string of attacks.
