The stabbing attack at the Damascus Gate of Jerusalem's Old City on Friday morning was caught on film and published by Al Jazeera, showing how Border Police officers shot the Arab terrorist dead after he stabbed two of them.

Viewer discretion is advised.

In the attack one officer was lightly wounded and another lightly to moderately wounded, after the terrorist snuck up on them from behind and launched his attack.

A 50-year-old Arab woman was also lightly wounded as shrapnel sent flying by the gunfire hit her leg.

"A terrorist attacked a squad of officers from behind, stabbed and wounded them lightly, the squad responded with fire and neutralized the terrorist," police said in a statement, identifying the dead terrorist as a 20-year-old from Kafr Aqab, located to the north of Jerusalem.

Reportedly the terrorist held a blue teudat zehut ID card, indicating permanent Israeli residency. The wounded officers were evacuated to Shaare Tzedek Hospital in Jerusalem.

Damascus Gate has become a central hot spot for attacks during the current wave of Arab terror that began last September, with Friday's attack marking at least the fourth attack or attack attempt at the site this week alone.

stabbing was prevented at the site on Tuesday, on Monday a 15-year-old female Palestinian Arab was arrested after a knife was found on her by alert security officers, and a shooting attempt by two Arab terrorists took place at the site on Sunday night.

The two on Sunday were shot by security personnel before they were able to inflict any injuries, and one of the assailants was later identified as a Palestinian Authority (PA) Security Force member.

Sunday night's shooting attempt was a repeat of an attack two weeks ago on Wednesday, when three terrorists armed with sub-machine guns, bombs and knives opened fire on security personnel at the Damascus Gate, killing female Border Police officer Hadar Cohen before being eliminated.

Friday's stabbing comes in the shadow of another stabbing the day before at a Rami Levy supermarket in Sha'ar Binyamin, in which 21-year-old Tuvia Yanai Weissman was murdered and 36-year-old Avi Avital was moderately wounded by two 14-year-old Arab terrorists.
