Both individuals, described to be in mild and moderate condition, were promptly evacuated to Shaare Tzedek Hospital for further medical attention.

The details surrounding the attack remain under investigation by authorities, who are diligently piecing together the sequence of events that led to this brazen act of violence.

As the victims receive medical care and support, the community grapples with the shock and concern sparked by this alarming incident.

Instances of violence, particularly in regions as historically significant and spiritually resonant as Jerusalem, serve as poignant reminders of the ongoing tensions that underscore the complex dynamics of the region.

While efforts towards peace and reconciliation persist, episodes such as this underscore the fragility of tranquillity in the region.
