Netanyahu: Border Policeman Is ‘a Big Hero’

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu spoke Sunday with Border Police Commander, Major General Amos Yaakov, and asked to convey wishes of speedy recovery to the Border Policeman who was seriously wounded in the stabbing terror attack Sunday in Jerusalem.

"Tell the warrior in the name of all the citizens of Israel that he is a big hero,” said Netanyahu. “He acted with extraordinary heroism and he deserves huhe appreciation. I laud his resoluteness and the resoluteness of all of the members of the security forces who foil the attempts to terrorize us, time and again.”

Hatzalah Union medic Hezi Roth told Arutz Sheva that when emergency services arrived on the scene of the attack at the Shechem Gate, they found a Border Policeman lying on the ground, wounded and bleeding after being stabbed. "We carried out resuscitation to save his life, and later on, an ambulance arrived but as it evacuated him, his condition got worse, because of the nature of the wounds, and became serious."

"The first medic on the scene said that he was able to talk to the Border Policeman, who told him that he managed to cock his weapon and shoot the terrorist who stabbed him," Roth said. "Then he collapsed and required our care."
