Jew believed to be attacker shot, killed in Jerusalem

5 Israelis wounded in violence Wednesday as 2 attackers shot dead, 1 critically wounded; 15-year-old armed with knife shot

 

A Jewish man, who security forces mistook for a nationalistically-motivated attacker, was shot and killed in central Jerusalem late Wednesday night, concluding a day of continued violence – mostly in the West Bank.

Initial investigation by the IDF’s criminal investigation division (CID) found that the Jewish man, who is believed to be a security guard, suspected that armed soldiers that boarded a bus were terrorists, and asked them for identification.

The soldiers, meanwhile, thought the Jewish man was a terrorist, claiming he attacked them and tried to grab one of their weapons. A physical altercation broke out between the soldiers and the man, which resulted in the man being shot by one of the soldiers.
