Following the shooting attack at Jerusalem's Damascus Gate in which two Border Police officers were wounded, President Reuven Rivlin said he spoke with Deputy Commander of the Border Police Yossi Poni who updated him on the details of the incident.

"I heard from him [Poni] how the alertness of our border police officers served again as a wall of defense and I asked him to express my support to all of the fighters," Rivlin said.

"Together with the entire nation of Israel, I am praying for the recovery of the wounded. To you, the Border Police forces, men and women, defenders of the walls of Jerusalem, I thank you in the name of the nation for your service against fighting against the murderous terror that sees no boundaries," Rivlin added.
