Police footage has emerged from Monday morning's terror attack in which two Border Police officers were stabbed.

The video shot from afar shows a calm Monday morning, between Damascus and Herod’s Gates, outside Jerusalem’s Old City. The attacker broke the calm, starting his stabbing spree. Crowds immediately rushed to attend to the two Border Police officers.

At the time of reporting, one female Border Police officer was in the hospital in serious condition and one male Border Police officer was in moderate condition.

The male officer had responded to the attack, shooting the terrorist.

The terrorist, who is reportedly in his early 20s and from east Jerusalem’s volatile Ras al-Amud neighborhood, was in critical condition.

Monday’s attack follows a thwarted Friday stabbing attack near Damascus Gate in which a Jordanian terrorist was shot and killed after charging police with a knife.

Following a spate of eight attacks over the past four days in Jerusalem and the West Bank, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has called for heightened security.
