Defense Minister Benny Gantz expresses backing for a Border Police officer who shot dead a Palestinian stabber who wounded a fellow policeman in the West Bank, after UN envoy Tor Wennesland said he was “horrified” by the fatal shooting.

“I forcefully condemn the attempts to portray the events in a false and manipulative manner and the UN envoy’s remark against the soldier, who acted with determination and professionally,” Gantz writes on Twitter.

He also says the officer and other Israeli forces have “full backing to continue operating against terror and to maintain the security of Israeli citizens.”
