Palestinian kills Israeli civilian in Jerusalem


An Israeli civilian was killed and a policeman wounded after a young Palestinian was stopped for a security check in Jerusalem.

The Palestinian terrorist pulled out a knife and stabbed one of two police officers who detained him on the street in Jerusaelm’s Gilo neighborhood Thursday morning. The assailant escaped the policemen, though he was shot and injured as he fled the scene, and then stabbed a 60-year-old Israeli civilian before being tackled and held by another civilian.

The civilian died of his wounds on the scene. The policeman and the terrorist are both being treated at Hadassah Ein Kerem hospital.
