"The police officer responded with determination and in a professional manner, managed to activate his weapon and neutralized him", Simri said.
According to The Times of Israel newspaper, a 57-year-old Jordanian national, who entered Israel a few days ago as a tourist, stabbed the policeman in Jerusalem's Old City.
An attacker was shot dead after he tried to stab a police officer in Jerusalem's Old City on Saturday afternoon, according to Israeli Police. Closed circuit footage released by police shows a bald man in a jacket lunging at the uniformed officer and swiping a knife at him before pinning him to the ground.
Minister Momani did not mention the stabbing in his statement, saying instead that Al-Kasji's death was a crime, and that Israel is responsible, as the occupying power in Jerusalem.
There was no comment from either the Jordanian or Palestinian side on the report. "Just as Israel condemns terror attacks in Jordan, Jordan must condemn terror attacks in Israel".
