Palestinian terrorists carried out two separate stabbing attacks in Jerusalem on Monday, within less than one hour.
At around 3.30pm, a 13-year-old boy was critically wounded in the Jewish neighborhood of Pisgat Ze’ev in East Jerusalem. Another man, 25, was seriously injured.
Two terrorists stabbed a Jewish man near Hanayadot Street and continued on their rampage when they noticed a Jewish boy riding a bicycle, and proceeded to stab him.
A passerby who noticed the attack ran towards them, and they began escaping towards Moshe Dayan Street. One of the terrorists was apparently hit by a car, while the other assailant continued running. A police cruiser with a police officer and Border Policeman noticed the assailants running towards them knife in hand, and shot him after he ignored their calls to stop.
Less than an hour before, a 18-year-old female terrorist stabbed a border policeman in Jerusalem’s Ammunition hill, wounding him lightly. The assailant was shot and overcome by police coming from the nearby headquarters of Israel Police.
Border policeman noticed the female terrorist after she raised their suspicion on Bar Lev st., he called on her to stop. The terrorist continued to move forward towards, then turned around and stabbed him. The patrolman acted with great professionalism, and managed to pull his gun and shoot her. The terrorist was evacuated to a local hospital in moderate condition.
Earlier in the day on Monday a terrorist attempted to conduct a stabbing attack near the Lion’s Gate in Jerusalem’s Old City, when he walked up to a border policeman and stabbed him in his vest.
The border policeman was not wounded and security forces immediately opened fire on the terrorist, killing him.
The officer who killed the terrorist said, “I told him come here I want to check you. We got closer to him, and I had my hand on my gun. He came up to us and took pulled a knife. After I told him again, he started running towards me and managed to stab one of the officer’s vests. We approached him while firing until he fell.”
The commander of the district said, “That’s how it’s done. Anyone who attempts to stab a police officer or innocent civilian, that’s the mission. Well done.”
