10-Nov-15: Jerusalem: Yet another knifing attack

On Jerusalem's eastern edge, another attempted stabbing attack has been narrowly averted:
An Arab terrorist attempted to conduct a stabbing attack on Tuesday afternoon at Hakiosk Checkpoint, located near Abu Dis to the east of Jerusalem. His intention of stabbing Border Police officers was thwarted however, as the security personnel beat him to the punch and shot him, neutralizing the terrorist. Initial reports indicate the terrorist approached the checkpoint with a drawn knife, rushing towards the combat soldiers while shouting "Allahu akbar" (Allah is greater). They called for him to stop several times, and when he refused and continued charging them they shot him down. [Israel National News]
The day is not yet over.
