Prime Minister Yair Lapid hails the action of a Ynet news site photographer who was at the scene of the stabbing attack at Jerusalem’s Ramot Junction earlier today and managed to shoot the attacker to prevent further casualties.

“I would like to wish a speedy recovery to the [man] injured in the stabbing incident in Jerusalem. I congratulate the Ynet photographer who happened to be at the scene and acted resolutely to neutralize the terrorist and prevent injury to other people,” Lapid says in a statement.

“We will not allow terrorism to raise its head and disrupt the routine of our lives. We will settle scores with anyone who tries to harm innocent civilians.”
