The policeman was reportedly moderately injured, but managed to kill the attacker with a gun. The victim was taken to a local hospital for medical treatment.

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

In April, a UK citizen Hannah Bladon was critically injured by a Palestinian resident of East Jerusalem Jamil Tamimi near the Old City in Jerusalem. She later died in a hospital due to numerous stab wounds. A week later pedestrians in Israeli city of Tel Aviv were attacked by a Palestinian man. The incident was recognized as a terror attack.
