An attorney for the main Palestinian suspect in this morning’s stabbing attack in East Jerusalem’s Sheikh Jarrah tells The Times of Israel that she “denies any connection” to the stabbing.

The suspect is a 14-year-old Palestinian girl from the neighborhood.

She allegedly stabbed Moriah Cohen, 26, a Jewish resident, while the latter was walking with her five children.

A hearing is set to be held tomorrow morning in Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court.
