Police killed a terrorist on Friday night at the Temple Mount at the HaShalshelet (Chain) Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem.
A policeman noticed a suspicious individual standing opposite them for a few minutes. The policeman approached him and began talking with him. The policeman began to escort the man to his car and told him to come back later when the gate reopens for the Islamic holiday. The terrorist then surprised the policeman, grabbing the policeman’s gun from his holster and cocked the weapon. The policeman grabbed the terrorist in a choke hold, but the terrorist managed to fire off two shots towards the two border policewomen who were with him, but thankfully missed.
הירי בהר הבית | מ', השוטר שירה עם חברו במוחמד אל עסיבי שנחשד כמחבל, משחזר: "הוא הסתובב אליי, הפתיע אותי והתנפל עליי. המחבל הצליח לירות שני כדורים לעבר שוטרות מג"ב – קפצתי עליו וביצעתי חניקה, וצעקתי לשוטר נוסף שירה בו. לקחתי ממנו את הנשק שלי ונטרלתי אותו" @noabaranes10 pic.twitter.com/OR1mSdhqXs
