Policewomen ‘heroes of the day,’ Jerusalem mayor says

Jerusalem Mayor Nir Barkat arrives at the scene of the attack, not far from city hall, and says that the “wave of attacks across the country has yet to end.”

“I’ve spoken with the police officers who attacked the terrorists and they are the heroes of the day,” he says. “Our war against the terror of knives continues.”

He implores Israelis to continue to visit Jerusalem despite the attack.

Paramedics say that the critically injured man hurt in an attack was shot by Border Police. Aharon Adler, the paramedic who treated the victim, says he was evacuated immediately to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem and taken straight to the operating room.
