The attacker was shot dead by another border policeman at the scene. Palestinian sources identified the dead terrorist as 41-year-old Amran Abu Dhaim, a resident of Jerusalem’s Jabel Mukaber neighborhood. The wounded officers were transported to a hospital for medical treatment.

Jerusalem District Police Commander Maj. Gen. Moshe Edri said the border policeman who neutralized the terrorist “did what was expected” of him by preventing further casualties. Following the attack, unrest broke out in the A-Tur neighborhood. Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat arrived at the scene of the attack to be briefed on the details of what happened.
