Tuesday 30-April-2024


A young man, believed to be a Turkish tourist, was shot dead on Tuesday morning after he stabbed and injured an Israeli police officer in the Old City of Occupied Jerusalem.

Eyewitnesses said that police officers opened fire at the young man and killed him after he carried out the stabbing attack.

An Israeli police source told the Hebrew media that the young man who carried out the stabbing attack near as-Sahira Gate in Jerusalem’s Old City is a Turkish citizen who arrived in Israel in the last 72 hours, most likely as a tourist.

Israeli medical sources said that a policeman was moderately wounded in the attack.

Soon later, Israeli police forces stormed a hotel in the holy city, where the slain Turkish citizen was staying.

Since the Israeli occupation regime launched its genocidal war on the Gaza Strip, resistance operations, including stabbing, car-ramming and shooting incidents, have been on the rise in the West Bank and Jerusalem.
