A terror attack was thwarted in Jerusalem Monday morning after an Arab man attempted to stab passengers waiting for the city’s light rail.

The terrorist was shot in the leg by security guards and is currently being treated in the hospital.

Security has been heightened within Jewish areas in the West Bank and Jerusalem as several attacks over the pass months have been either prevented or occurred.
