A video that has been uploaded to social networks appears to show the moment of the stabbing attack against a Border Policeman in Jerusalem earlier Sunday.
The shaky video shows the policeman falling after the stabbing, then apparently getting up after he shot his assailant, who cannot be seen in the video.
It appears that the video was shot by an accomplice who knew the attack was about to take place.
Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu spoke Sunday with Border Police Commander, Major General Amos Yaakov, and asked to convey wishes of speedy recovery to the policeman who was seriously wounded in the stabbing terror attack.
"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."
