Female Cop Seriously Hurt in Terror Stabbing

Wave of terror escalating ahead of autumn biblical festivals; Netanyahu convenes emergency cabinet meeting

By |

A young female police officer was seriously wounded on Monday when a Palestinian Arab terrorist stabbed her in the next just outside Jerusalem’s Old City.

The 20-year-old victim was stationed at Herod’s Gate when the terrorist snuck up behind her and began stabbing. An older male police officer was also stabbed, but managed to open fire on the terrorist and critically wounded him.

Additional forces were called in to secure the area. Israeli officials are increasingly concerned over the fresh wave of terrorist stabbings with the autumn biblical festivals just weeks away.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Sunday evening convened an emergency cabinet meeting to discuss increased security measures during Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur and Sukkot.

As part of efforts to reduce tensions, Netanyahu ordered Knesset Speaker Yuli Edelstein to continue to prevent Jewish government ministers and members of Knesset from ascending the Temple Mount.
