Terror struck Israel early this morning when a Palestinian terrorist attacked Border Police in Jerusalem's Old City. The Times of Israel's Judah Ari Gross reports that two police officers were stabbed and wounded in the attack near the Lions' Gate:

Two Border Police officers were moderately wounded in a stabbing attack in Jerusalem in the early hours of Monday morning, police said.

The assailant was shot and critically wounded during the attack. He later died of his injuries.

The stabbing occurred shortly after 4:00 a.m. near the Lions’ Gate in the Old City.

According to police, the assailant entered a guard booth where the two officers were stationed, holding a large butcher’s knife. Inside the cramped post, he began stabbing and hitting them.

After a brief struggle, one of the officers fought his way out of the guard booth, loaded his weapon and shot the assailant, police said.
