Two Palestinians suspected of stabbing an ultra-Orthodox youth in Jerusalem’s Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood last Thursday were detained for questioning Monday, Jerusalem police said Tuesday.

The two are 18-year-old residents of East Jerusalem. Jerusalem police said the stabbing may have been ideologically motivated. The men were questioned by the Shin Bet.

The stabbing took place late Thursday evening near the Tomb of Shimon Hatzadik (“Simon the righteous”). The victim, stabbed twice in the stomach, was moderately injured.
