A Palestinian terrorist burst into an Israeli border guard checkpoint at Lions Gate in the Old Cit of Jerusalem early Monday and stabbed two of the officers, injuring one seriously. The assailant from the East Jerusalem Jabal Muqabr neighborhood, took advantage of the changing of the guard for his surprise attack.. One of the injured officers shot him dead.
Our unique angle on these subjects – and strong intelligence dimension – has earned DEBKAfile a global reputation and a steady readership – which skyrockets in times of crisis.
