Lion's Gate entrance to Old City in Jerusalem (Archive)

A Border Guard Police officer was stabbed by an 18-year-old female terrorist Monday afternoon in the Ammunition Hill section of Jerusalem near Ramat Eshkol.

The Arab teen terrorist was shot by police after she stabbed her victim. She first caught the notice of an officer who ordered her to stop while striding along on Rehov Bar Lev. Instead, she hurried ahead and then turned and stabbed the officer.

Wounded, the police officer nevertheless managed to pull out his gun and shoot his attacker.

The terrorist was later taken to a local hospital in fair condition.

A similar attack took place earlier in the day near the Lion’s Gate entrance to the Old City of Jerusalem.

A Palestinian Arab terrorist walked up to a Border Guard Police officer and stabbed him in the chest – but the knife struck the officer’s bullet-proof vest, which prevented any wound.

Security personnel immediately shot and killed the attacker, who has been identified as 18-year-old Mustafa Hatib, a resident of the Jerusalem neighborhood of Jabel Mukabar.

“I told him, ‘Come here – I want to check you,’ and as we came closer to him, I had my hand on my gun,” said one of the officers.

“I told him again, and he started running towards me and managed to stab one of the officers’ vests. We approached him while firing, until he fell.”

“That’s how it’s done,” said the Jerusalem district commander approvingly. “Anyone who attempts to stab a police officer or innocent civilian, that’s the mission.

“Well done.”

  1. If you insist on allowing these people to remain in Israel then build barns for them to live in and don't slow them out. Barbed wire fences with armed guards and cement beds to sleep on. Feed them rice and beans as their main meal. Stop worrying about being humane. They don't have a problem with stabbing Jews. Stop wording about What the rest of the countries think. They don't want to help. They can mind their own business. Sorry folks. I spent 20 years trying to help keep our streets safe and I guess I am tired of criminals and low lifes deciding how we are going to live.
