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.
