Jordanian stabber shot dead in Jerusalem

Israel Jordan trade blows over Jerusalem killing

The attacker was identified as Muhammad Abdullah Salim al-Qassagi, a 57-year-old Jordanian citizen who arrived in Israel last week via the northern border crossing.

A Jordanian citizen attacked an Israeli policeman with a knife near the Lion's Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem on Saturday.

"The terrorist rushed toward him, whipped out a knife that he had in his possession, stormed him and began stabbing him".

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.

The attacker, brandishing a knife, stabbed the policeman in one of the alleys of the Old City before the wounded officer shot him dead, the statement said. "It's time for Jordan to stop this double game". Such attacks, of which there are hundreds in Israel recognize the actions of individuals, but accused the Palestinian authorities, groups and the media controlled by them in fomenting radicalism.

According to Ma'an documentation, the Palestinian was the 22nd to have been killed by Israelis since the beginning of the year.

Thirty-seven Israelis, two American tourists and a British student have been killed in the street attacks which have slowed in recent months, though not stopped. Others died during clashes and protests.

Israel says the violence is fueled by a Palestinian campaign of incitement.

The Palestinians want East Jerusalem, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, territories that Israel captured in the 1967 war, for a future state.
