One Hebron stabber in critical condition — police

In a statement, the Israel Police describe the incident in Hebron:

Two hours ago, two terrorists, residents of Hebron, arrived to carry out an attack against Border Police officers near the Tomb of the Patriarchs. It appears as through the terrorists approached the police officers, and when they were near them pulled out knives and tried to stab them. The Border Police officers stationed there opened fire at the terrorists. It appears as though one terrorist has been neutralized while the other is in critical condition.

It isn’t immediately clear what the police mean by “neutralized,” a euphemistic term that could mean dead, but also incapacitated.
