Officer hit by ricochet, lightly injured, during the incident by Council Gate, amid heightened tensions

Judah Ari Gross is The Times of Israel’s military correspondent.

An assailant was shot and arrested after he attempted to stab police officers in Jerusalem’s Old City on Friday afternoon, police said.

“One of the officers was apparently lightly injured from a ricochet,” police said.

The alleged attempted stabbing occurred at the Old City’s Council Gate, on the northern side of the western Temple Mount wall, police said.

The incident came amid heightened tensions in Jerusalem and the West Bank, following a prison break by six Palestinian security prisoners earlier in the week.
