JNS.org – Two armed Palestinian terrorists, a male and a female, were shot dead by Israeli security personnel on Wednesday morning at the Qalandiya crossing north of Jerusalem. No Israelis were wounded in the incident.

The two terrorists approached a vehicles-only part of the crossing, which is the main transit point between Jerusalem and Ramallah, by foot. They drew the suspicion of security personnel and did not heed multiple calls to stop. The female terrorist brandished a knife and security personnel subsequently opened fire, killing the terrorists.

Knives were found in the possession of both terrorists. An Israel Police statement said, “The alertness and professional actions of Israel Police officers and Border Police soldiers prevented harm to security personnel and civilians.”

Security forces throughout Jerusalem have been on high alert during the Passover holiday.
