A 20 year-old Israeli border guard is in critical condition in a Jerusalem hospital, and several civilians are injured after two simultaneous knife and gun assaults in the historic city center. Two assailants have been shot dead, and another two detained, according to police.

Israeli media reported that in one of the incidents, close to Damascus Gate, the attackers rushed at a group of border guards, with one brandishing a homemade submachine gun, which jammed. Both of the assailants were killed.

The second attack reportedly happened outside the tourist landmark Zedekiah’s Cave several dozen yards away, with the perpetrators swinging wildly at passersby. Two people are reported to have been “lightly injured” in the incident.
