A Palestinian terrorist in Netanyahu stabbed and wounded an Israeli policeman today. Ynet News' Raanan Ben-Zur reports that the officer was injured, but was able to shoot and neutralize his attacker:

A witness, Doron Gabriel, said the stabber called out "Allahu Akbar" twice before attacking the police officer...

"I saw a terrorist with a knife outside the store who came to stab me," he said. "I took a small ladder and meant to go out (and fight him). The Border Policeman shot him three times and saved me. I owe him gratitude, without him I could've been slaughtered. He cut the Border Policeman in the neck, tried to slaughter him..."
