Three wounded in Jerusalem Old City stabbing attack
By Arutz Sheva Staff
Three people have been wounded in a stabbing attack early Wednesday afternoon at Jerusalem’s Jaffa Gate, a popular tourist spot on the western side of the Old City.
The attack was carried out by two Arab terrorists. Border Policewomen stationed in the area opened fire on both of them, killing one and wounding the other, who was then promptly taken into custody.
Police are investigating emerging reports that the critically injured victim was in fact accidentally shot by security forces in the process of neutralizing the terrorists. Doctors at Hadassah Ein Kerem say he is in life-threatening condition and they are fighting for his life.
ZAKA volunteer paramedic Shimi Grossman, who was at the scene, described it as particularly serious attack, describing how the two terrorists pounced upon their first two Jewish victims at the entrance to Jaffa gate, before being neutralized by security forces.
In a statement, the Jerusalem Police Department described how “Border Policewomen noticed civilians running in panic towards Jaffa Gate, and, understanding that an attack was taking place, acted to limit the slaughter as they ran towards the sea of civilians.”
“The officers identified two terrorists with knives as they were stabbing a man; with great determination and professionalism they directed fire towards the terrorists and neutralized them.”
