In breaking news from the Old City of Jerusalem, terror has again struck Israel. The Times of Israel reports that a female Border Police officer is in critical condition after multiple Palestinian terrorists carried out a coordinated shooting and stabbing attack on Israeli officers at the Damascus Gate:

One attacker armed with a knife stabbed and injured a female cop, 20, on Sultan Suleiman Street near Damascus Gate. She was transferred to Hadassah Hospital Mount Scopus in Jerusalem for treatment. The hospital said she was undergoing surgery in efforts to save her life.

The attacker was shot and killed.

In a nearby location, at Zedekiah’s Cave, two attackers, one of them with a knife and another with a homemade Carl Gustav sub-machine gun, attacked a group of Border Police officers.

The troops opened fire and killed the attackers.

The terror group Hamas, which rules the Gaza Strip, praised the attack...

Please join us in prayer for the recovery of the officer and others who were wounded, while also asking God for His hand of protection over those who so bravely protect the Holy Land.
