The female Border Police officer who was at Jerusalem’s Damascus Gate today when a terrorist tried to carry out a stabbing attack recalled the dramatic moments: “Once I heard the shouts ‘Allahu Akbar,’ I turned around and saw the terrorist with a knife. I immediately took a step back, cocked my gun and shot him.

“I noticed the terrorist and fired,” said Shin, the female Border Police officer who neutralized the terrorist who attempted to carry out a stabbing attack today (Friday) at Jerusalem’s Damascus Gate.

Shin is stationed in the area near the Damascus Gate as part of her routine security route. At around 1:00 PM today, a terrorist armed with a knife ran towards her and another Border Police officer.

“Once I heard the shouts ‘Allahu Akbar,’ I turned around and saw the terrorist with a knife,” recalled Shin. “I immediately took a step back, cocked my gun and shot him.”

The terrorist, a Jordanian citizen in his 20s who just recently entered Israel, was neutralized thanks to Shin’s quick response. Border Police officers found a second knife on the terrorist while they were frisking him.

“This is what is expected from us as Border Police officers,” said Shin. “Our job is to preserve the security of the civilians.”
