Sawael had been critically wounded in a terror attack near the Anatot Checkpoint, which is next to Shuafat, in Jerusalem, located between the Hebrew University and Pisgat Ze’ev.


The policeman and a civilian guard entered a bus to check it at the checkpoint when the terrorist attacked the policemen with knife. Both security men opened fire. The 13-year-old terrorist from Shuafat was lightly wounded and arrested, and is being treated well in the hospital. Suaed was apparently hit and wounded by the guard’s bullet.
