Video from security cameras obtained by the police shows the first moments of Friday morning’s terrorist attack in Jerusalem, in which police officers Haiel Sitawe and Kamil Shnaan were murdered.

As can be seen in the video, the armed terrorists were in the vicinity of the Temple Mount compound, exploiting the sanctity of the site and Israel’s easing of restrictions on worshippers in order to harm the security forces.

Shortly after 7:00 a.m. on Friday morning, the terrorists opened fire at the two policemen before fleeing back to the Temple Mount compound, where they remained until police officers neutralized them.
