After Jordanian officials condemned Israeli police for shooting dead a terrorist in the Old City of Jerusalem, Israeli authorities released footage of the man brandishing a knife and attempting to murder police officers.

The 28-year old terrorist, Saeed Amro, a Jordanian national, had entered Israel as a tourist on Thursday.

The Jordanian government claimed Amro was innocent, decrying his death as a “barbaric act of the army of the Israeli occupation,” calling the shooting “premeditated.”

However, in a video released on Sunday, Amro can be seen charging an Israeli police officer before being neutralized.
