The Palestinian man was seriously injured by the Israeli police for allegedly attempting a knife attack in the Old City of East Jerusalem, Israel’s Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital said in a statement.
After being seriously injured by the Israeli police, Hazem al-Julani, a Palestinian medical doctor, was taken to Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in West Jerusalem for treatment, according to Palestinian media.
