Two Arab terrorists on Sunday night opened fire on Border Police officers at the Damascus Gate of Jerusalem’s Old City.
Police officers are searching the area and are looking into suspicions that the terrorists hid explosives nearby before the attack.
Earlier on Sunday evening, terrorists from the village of Jilazun opened fire at homes in the nearby town of Beit El in Binyamin. No one was hurt but a home sustained damage.
On Sunday afternoon, a female Arab terrorist was shot as she tried to stab a Border Police officer adjacent to Hevron’s Cave of Machpelah.
The terrorist approached a Border Police post adjacent to the holy site, and suddenly whipped out a knife and tried to stab one of the officers on duty.
The combat soldier responded by shoving the terrorist away and shooting her, critically wounding the would-be stabber.
