Police say that after an initial interrogation of a Palestinian suspect in the Jaffa stabbing attack earlier today, indications are increasing that the incident was a terror attack.

Authorities initially believed it was an attempted robbery. A 67-year-old Israeli man was moderately injured.

If confirmed, it would be the second terror attack of the day, after a shooting attack in Jerusalem’s Old City killed a man and injured four.
