A Palestinian terrorist was shot and neutralized on Monday morning during an attempted stabbing at the Mizmoria crossing close to Jerusalem’s Har Homa neighborhood.
Border Police stationed at the crossing stopped the assailant after he aroused their suspicion, at which point he drew a knife, prompting the officers to open fire.
No other injuries were reported in the attack.
