A knife-wielding terrorist tried to stab Border Police officers near the Shalem police station in Jerusalem overnight Wednesday.

The Border Police officers, who were operating outside the police station, were inspecting the terrorist, who aroused their suspicion, when he pulled out a knife which was in his possession, charged the officers and tried to stab one of them.

The officers opened fire and neutralized the terrorist before he could stab them. There were no injuries among the officers.

In later April, a 30-year-old Border Police officer was stabbed and moderately injured on Sultan Suleiman Street, near Herod's Gate in Jerusalem.

The officer was taken to Shaare Zedek Hospital and released a day later, after his condition improved.

The terrorist who carried out the attack, a tourist from Turkey, was shot by officers who were nearby and was eliminated.
