Old City attack ‘could have been much worse’

A Jerusalem police spokesman tells Israel Radio that the attack outside the Old City of Jerusalem “could have been much worse” if it weren’t for the quick response of Border Police soldiers who were at the scene.

He says the women were stationed at the Jaffa Gate when they discerned the attack taking place not far from their position. They ran over and shot the attackers in the midst of the attack, killing one terrorist and injuring a second.

One of the three Israelis hurt in the incident was reportedly hit by police gunfire and seriously hurt.
