Palestinian gunned down in Jerusalem after stabbing Orthodox Jewish man (VIDEO)

A Palestinian man repeatedly stabbed a younger Orthodox Jew in Jerusalem earlier than being gunned down by Israeli Border Police. The killing was condemned by Palestinian officers, whereas Israeli authorities have praised the officers.

The stabbing assault occurred close to Jerusalem’s Damascus Gate on Saturday. Footage from the scene, launched by Israeli regulation enforcement, exhibits the assailant, recognized as 25-year-old Mohammed Shawkat Salima, crossing the street, along with his would-be-victim, a 20-year-old Haredi man approaching him from behind.

The Palestinian man then abruptly turns round, stabbing the ultra-Orthodox Jewish man a number of instances, earlier than operating in the direction of two Border Law enforcement officials who rushed to intervene. The assailant appeared to try to stab one of many officers, earlier than getting shot a number of instances.


One other video, captured by a motorist driving by, exhibits the fast aftermath of the stabbing and first photographs fired. The 2 officers strategy the already wounded Palestinian, mendacity susceptible on the bottom, with one of many officers taking two photographs at him, the final bullet apparently killing the person.


The actions of the Israeli officers have been condemned by Palestinians, with prime officers branding the capturing a cold-blooded homicide.

“The killing of the younger man after he had been wounded is a documented struggle crime,” President of the Palestinian Authority Mahmoud Abbas stated in an announcement.

Israeli officers, for his or her half, lauded the Border Police for his or her intervention within the stabbing, praising the resolve and quick-thinking of the officers concerned within the capturing.

The chief of the pressure Amir Cohen stated the 2 had acted accurately within the scenario, whereas Israeli PM Naftali Bennett stated they’d “acted in a short time and decisively, as anticipated of Israeli police, in opposition to a terrorist who tried to homicide an Israeli citizen.”

The Haredi man suffered “reasonable” accidents throughout the incident, ending up hospitalized and in “steady” situation. Whereas Israeli authorities have branded the stabbing a “terrorist assault,” the motives behind the actions of the Palestinian assailant stay unknown.
