Jordanian 'attacker' shot dead by Israeli police

Share

Police identified the attacker as Muhammad Abdullah Salim al-Qassagi, a 57-year-old Jordanian citizen, who arrived in Israel a week ago. The other was a bystander who was lightly wounded.

Police arrested a shopkeeper who tried to prevent the Israelis from helping the officer, Samri said. "Terror is terror", Netanyahu's Office said. Jordanian government spokesman Mohammad al Momani disputed the Israeli account of the incident, which he described as an "ugly crime". "Just as Israel condemns terror attacks in Jordan, Jordan must condemn terror attacks in Israel". Jordan was referring to the policeman's self-defense and not to the reportedly unprovoked terrorist attack by one of its own citizens.

Yates says she warned White House that Flynn could be 'blackmailed'
The ranking Democrat on the committee, Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) accused Nunes at the time of attempting to "choke off public info". That failure falls squarely on Trump's White House, which should have had that completed before pushing Flynn into position.

The incident comes against the background of increasing stabbing attacks in Israel committed by Palestinians.

The attacks have diminished over time and Israeli police say the most recent attacks have not been ideological by nature and have mostly been carried out by Palestinians plagued by personal or mental health issues. The Palestinians want East Jerusalem, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, territories that Israel captured in the 1967 war, for a future state. U.S. President Donald Trump has vowed to try and broker a historic peace deal to end the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
