Palestinian terrorists continue to attack innocent Israeli civilians, while the world remains silent.

Palestinian terrorists stabbed and moderately wounded two elderly Israeli women while on their morning walk at Jerusalem’s Armon Hanatziv promenade Tuesday morning.
The victims, approximately 80 years old, were walking with three other women when they were assaulted from behind by two masked Palestinian terrorists.
The victims sustained moderate stab wounds to their upper bodies.
The terrorists fled to the nearby Jabel-Mukaber neighborhood.
Security forces launched a broad manhunt and set up road blocks to capture the terrorists.
Police announced they have captured two suspects, and that they were continuing with their searches and investigation.
The two victims were taken to Shaare Zedek hospital in Jerusalem, were they were said to be in stable condition.
The Armon Hanatziv neighborhood is situated adjacent to Palestinian neighborhoods and has been the site of several terror attacks, some of them lethal.
In October, two Palestinian terrorists boarded a bus in that area and shot and stabbed passengers, murdering Alon Gobeberg, Haim Haviv and Richard Lakin, who also had American citizenship, before being shot dead by security forces. Another 17 Israelis were wounded in the attack.
This incident was the latest in a long series of Palestinian terror attacks, which have plagued Israelis over the course of over seven months, claiming the lives of 33 victims and wounding over 400.
