There was a terror shooting attack near the Damascus Gate (Sha’ar Shechem) of the Old City of Jerusalem, according to a TPS report.
The attack happened just before 11 PM on Sunday. The terrorists attempted to shoot at a group of Border Policemen who were standing together and receiving their orders for the evening.
The approaching Arab man aroused the suspicion of the policemen, and they asked him to show them what was in the bag he was carrying. He then pulled out his weapon and aimed it at them.
What saved the policemen from the terrorists who were standing a mere 5 meters away, according to HotNews1, was that when the first terrorist cocked his weapon, the magazine fell out.
The first terrorist was immediately neutralized (killed) by the policemen, who quickly opened fire.
A second terrorist then began shooting at the policemen from approximately 100 meters away.
A gunfight ensued, and accurate shooting on the policemen’s part quickly neutralized (killed) him too.
After a 15-20 minute search, a third suspected terrorist was arrested. It appears now that he was not involved in the attack.
No policemen were wounded.
