Border Police officers shoot a Palestinian who allegedly attempted to carry out a stabbing attack at a checkpoint near the West Bank town of Abu Dis, on the outskirts of Jerusalem.

According to police, the suspect arrived at the so-called Kiosk Checkpoint near Abu Dis, drew a knife, and tried to stab officers there.

Border Police officers operating at the checkpoint returned fire, “neutralizing” the suspect, police say.

There are no other injuries in the incident.
