Two people were wounded after a Palestinian terrorist stabbed shoppers at a supermarket at the Mishor Adumim industrial area, east of Jerusalem Wednesday afternoon, Israeli Police said.

“The security guard fired at the legs of the assailant, who stabbed two individuals at the Rami Levy Supermarket,” according to police Spokesman Mickey Rosenfeld.

The guard, who works in Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s office, was armed but off-duty at the time of the attack, Ynet News said.
