An Arab terrorist was shot dead after stabbing a male and female border police officers in the Old City of Jerusalem on Wednesday.

The 16-year old Arab terrorist identified as Omar Ibrahim abu asav, was killed by Rabbi Aviv Tzubari, the head of the Ateret Cohanim Yeshiva (seminary) in Jerusalem’s Old City where the attack took place.
