    Israeli police arrested two men in Jerusalem after they had wounded two elderly women, a police spokesman said Tuesday.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Israeli police arrested two "terrorists" in Jerusalem after they stabbed two elderly women, a police spokesman said Tuesday.

    "Police units arrest 2 terrorists who carried out stabbing attack in Jerusalem," Superintendent Micky Rosenfeld said on Twitter.

    ​The women came under attack in Jerusalem’s Armon Hanatziv neighborhood. Their condition was described by police as moderate. The women were in a group of other people when they were attacked by unidentified assailants. They are both in moderate condition, the police spokesman said.

    Security has been stepped up in the city in the wake of the new stabbing. Tensions have been on the rise in Israel amid lack of process in talks with Palestinians.
