A shocking video recorded the moment Israeli security forces shot dead a Palestinian terrorist in Jerusalem on Saturday.
The unnamed terrorist was in Israel illegally and had stabbed a man, then lunged at responding police officers before being fatally shot.
The video quickly went viral and the Palestinian Foreign Ministry released an edited video that attempted to demonize Israeli security forces.
The unedited footage was quickly released and ended all speculation of wrongdoing on the part of Israeli security forces.
Israeli Prime Minister Naftali Bennett commented on the attack saying, “Regarding yesterday’s incident at Damascus Gate — I am glad that this time, not long after the edited Palestinian video was distributed, the full video was published by the police. I suggest to everyone: Never rush to make a judgment about the behavior of officers in complex operational situations in the face of terrorism. It’s always better to wait a minute.”
Radical extremists have made a habit of attacking Jewish citizens in Jerusalem and swift and deadly force is often required to protect innocent civilians. Thankfully, the quick actions of Israeli security forces may have prevented a terrible tragedy.
