Israel Police OctA Palestinian terrorist was shot and killed Monday morning near Lion’s Gate, in the Arab Quarter of Jerusalem’s Old City, after attempting to stab a Border Police officer. It was the third such attack at the contested site in less than 10 days.

According to police, at approximately 9 a.m., the unidentified assailant, whom police deemed suspicious, was asked to stop for inspection. The suspect then withdrew a knife from his pocket and charged one of the officers, stabbing him in his metal breastplate.

Police immediately opened fire, killing the man.

Despite markedly heightened security, coupled by newly-installed metal detectors, the area located near the entrance to the Temple Mount remains one of the most volatile and dangerous  sections of the Old City.
