Israeli Police Officer Wounded in Jerusalem Attack After Palestinian Shot

Israel’s police on Monday said a border policeman was wounded in a suspected stabbing attack in Jerusalem’s Old City. It comes after Israeli security guards shot and wounded a Palestinian, who they later found out was deaf and couldn’t hear their commands to stop at a West Bank checkpoint.

According to police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld, the alleged attacker was shot and killed.

In recent years, lone Palestinian attackers have carried out a series of stabbings, shootings and car attacks.

But Palestinians and Israeli rights groups say Israeli forces often use excessive force and at times kill suspected attackers who could have been arrested.
