A woman tried to stab police positioned outside the Damascus Gate, but the Border Police shot her before any of the officers were injured.

According to police, the woman approached the officers with a knife before they opened fire.

She was pronounced dead minutes later by medics from the Magen David Adom ambulance service, a spokesperson said…

In the past year and a half, the Old City, and the Damascus Gate in particular, has seen several attacks by Palestinians, and in one case a Jordanian national.

Earlier this month, an East Jerusalem man stabbed two Border Police officers near the Old City’s Lions’ Gate, moderately wounding them before they were able to shoot him.
