The train guard describes, in his own words, how he captured the terrorist who was going to explode a bomb on the Jerusalem Light Rail:
(Video at the bottom of the article)
“As I’m watching the entrance to the train, I saw a man wearing a hat, glasses, a knapsack on his back, leaning on the wall and he’s scanning the train station left and right.
I approached the man, and questioned him, I said something wasn’t right.
I asked him to put down his knapsack.
I immediately spun the man around, using reasonable force, I placed him against the wall, and checked him.
I took the knapsack off him, and saw a small bag inside. I lifted the bag up and saw the bomb.
I immediately knocked him down onto the ground.
A police sapper continues the story:
Two civilians approached me, they said there is a terrorist.
I ran to Yafo street and I saw the train guards who yelled there’s a terrorist, who was already on the ground, with guns pointed at him.
I understood there was a knapsack and inside was a pipe bomb. I moved everyone away…
The reaction of the train guards, who got there quickly, and the police, we cordoned off the area, and worked orderly to deal with the bomb.Jewish Press News Briefs
