The IDF Spokesperson's Unit released a video on Monday which shows the 17-year-old Palestinian Authority Arab terrorist who attacked a Border Police officer in Hevron last Wednesday.

The terrorist was ultimately killed by a female officer who was on hand and shot the teen when she sensed that her fellow officer was in danger. An investigation found that the 17-year-old attacker’s gun had contained no bullets, but as the officer told interviewers, “I thought that my partner would die if I didn’t act within seconds. There was no time to confirm that the gun was real.”

PA Arabs, outraged over the killing of the terrorist, responded by rioting throughout Judea and Samaria.

The 20-year-old officer who shot the attacker faced death threats. Arab-language websites published her picture and social media users were calling for retaliation.
