A suicidal Jewish man chose to end his life by running toward a group of soldiers at a checkpoint carrying a knife. His family recently received the footage of the tragic incident, which took place in May.
In May, IDF soldiers standing at the Hizma checkpoint in East Jerusalem spotted a young man running toward them with a knife. They immediately shot him dead. This was in the midst of a deadly terror wave that had hit Israel, during which vicious stabbing attacks were being committed almost daily.
It later turned out, though, that the man had not been a terrorist, but a Jewish man who wished to end his life and chose to do so by faking a terror attack. He had even written a suicide note.
Recently, the man’s family received the footage from the security cameras near the checkpoint.
