An Israeli security guard was seriously wounded by a Palestinian in a stabbing attack near the Western Wall in the old city of Jerusalem on Sunday afternoon. The terrorist was shot and killed by an Israeli policeman.

The terrorist was identified as 28-year-old Abd al-Rahman Bani Fadel, from the village of Aqraba, near the city of Shechem (Nablus)in Samaria. Earlier reports from Israel’s Channel 10 television stated that Turkish identity papers were found on the body of the alleged assailant later proved to be inaccurate.

“I pray for the health of the person injured in the terror attack in Jerusalem,” Gilad Erdan, the public security minister, said in a tweet. “I praise the police officer who reacted swiftly and killed the terrorist and prevented further injuries.

“The Israel Police will continue to take action against despicable terrorists who are incited [to violence] by the Palestinian Authority in Jerusalem and throughout the country,” he added.

On Friday, two Israeli soldiers were killed and two others were injured when a Palestinian man rammed his car into them as they were standing outside a military observation post near the town of  Mevo Dotan settlement in Samaria.
