Zionist security forces on Tuesday shot dead a young Jewish man who ran at them with a knife at a checkpoint near Al-Quds (Jerusalem), police said.
“Members of the security services at Hizma spotted a man running in their direction with an object in his hand,” a police statement said, referring to the checkpoint between Jerusalem and the occupied West Bank.
“They considered (him) an immediate danger to their lives and opened fire.”
The attacker was a 20-year-old Jewish man from Jerusalem, the police said.
He was killed on the spot, they said, later publishing a picture of a short knife he was alleged to have been carrying.
