Knife-Wielding Assailant Shot Dead After Stabbing Israeli Police Officer in Jerusalem
A knife-wielding assailant wounded an Israeli policeman in the Old City of Jerusalem and was shot dead by an officer on Monday, a police spokesman said.
The slain man’s identity was not immediately clear, the spokesman said.
Video footage circulated on social media, and which Reuters could not immediately verify, showing a man who appeared to be in his 20s or 30s wearing a surgical mask and lying motionless in an alley as an Israeli policeman pointed a pistol at him.
