Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu spoke with Major General Amos Yaakov, Commander of the Border Police, on Sunday following a stabbing attack on one of his forces in Jerusalem earlier in the day.

The Border Police, who was attacked near the Old City's Damascus Gate, was in serious to critical condition. 

After being stabbed, the injured officer drew his pistol and was able to shoot the Palestinian attacker who was later evacuated to a hospital in serious condition.

"The officer acted with exceptional bravery and he is worthy of praise. I commend his commitment and the commitment of all of the security forces who frustrate time and again the many attempts to harm us," Netanyahu said.
