Terror struck again in Jerusalem’s Old City earlier this week when a Palestinian man attacked two Israeli police officers. According to police reports, the assailant entered a guard booth where the two officers were stationed, holding a large butcher’s knife and began stabbing them. One of the officers fought his way out of the guard booth and shot the assailant. The attacker later died of his wounds.
