The latest example comes from this morning's attack near Lion's Gate, as reported in TOI:
A man attempted to stab a police officer and was shot and killed in Jerusalem’s Old City Monday morning, the latest incident in a spate of terror attacks that have rocked the capital and the rest of Israel over the last two weeks.Palestine News Network denies everything, using those famous anonymous "eyewitnesses" whose credibilty is nearly always close to zero:
Police said there were no injuries in the attempted attack and the attacker was pronounced dead at the scene.
The incident occurred near the Lions’ Gate entrance to the Old City, the site of two previous stabbing attacks, including one that left two people dead over a week ago.
A police spokesperson said the attacker, an Arab man, approached the area from a cemetery to the north and was asked to take his hands out of his pockets by police, who suspected something was amiss.
The man then took a knife out of his pocket and tried to stab a police officer. The officer was wearing a protective vest and was not injured.
“The officers quickly shot the attacker,” the spokesperson said.
A Palestinian youth on Monday morning has been executed by Israeli occupation police forces, under claims that he tried to initiate a stab operative near Lion’s Gate (Bab Al-Asbat) in the old city of Jerusalem.In Arabic, however, PNN highlights photos of Arab women bravely brandishing knives.
Eyewitnesses at the scene confirmed that the man did not initiate any stabbing attempts, saying that he was passing in his vehicle through the old city’s narrow street, when the police stopped him, and opened fire on him for no apparent reason.
Other eyewitnesses said that he was taking out his mobile phone from his pocket, when IOF shot him.
Meanwhile, video was released showing an Arab stabbing Israeli police on Saturday, another event that PNN had tried to cast doubt on:
Amnesty International would say that the officers were "heavily protected" and had nothing to fear from a man stabbing them in the head. Perhaps they should have called up Amnesty during the attack to ask advice on the optimal method to save the life of a man desperately trying to kill them.
