Security camera footage emerged on Tuesday evening of a 37-year-old terrorist wielding a knife who charged two security guards at Damascus Gate in Jerusalem’s Old City earlier in the day.  

In the video the assailant can be seen with the knife running towards the guards and the guards rapidly responding to the attack.

Police spokeswoman Luba Samri said one of the guards shot him, leaving him in critical condition. He later died of his wounds.

Just before the Damascus Gate attack, a guard at a Jerusalem light rail station was accosted by two Palestinian minors, ages 12 and 13, one of who stabbed him with a knife before the guard shot and disarmed him.
