Eldad Bar Kochba who was at the scene said that “The terrorist took out a knife and lunged at someone. I ran towards him, gave him a kick in the face and knocked his knife away. Police came and succeeded in shooting him. He was a boy of 17-18 years old.”

Police later reported that the terrorist was a 14-year-old resident of the Beit Hanina neighborhood in Jerusalem.

United Hatzalah volunteer physician Dr. Shlomo Gensler related: “I provided initial treatment to a man who was stabbed in his back, after which he was transported to Shaare Zedek hospital. His condition is currently defined as moderate and stable. Due to the nature of the incident, several people were treated by United Hatzalah’s Psychotrauma and Crisis Response Unit.”

MDA paramedics Elad Rozmarin and Sarah Kapah recounted: “When we arrived at the train station on Shimon Hatzadik Street, we saw a man of about 25 years old, fully conscious with stab wounds on his upper body. We administered life-saving treatment and  evacuated him to the hospital in moderate condition.

Golda Meir, was so on target with her statement in reponse to the question when will there be peace “when the arabs love their children more than they hate the Jew. This murdering teenage terrorist only serves to confirm the vile hatred that is taught to these children. B”H the security officer was able to eliminate the terrorist, however I worry about how he will handle the trauma of having to kill a 14 year old, even though he was intent on murdering innocent Jews for no other reason than being Jewish.Please HaShem this world is in desperate need of Moshiach.

Arabs are already reporting how a child was being abused by illegal settlers in East Jerusalem, and a soldier who saw the struggle fired away. The truth is that Shivtei Israel Station, where this took place, is on the Israeli side of the former nuetral zone (now Highway 60) between Israel and Jordan, and that the “child” was the attacker. However, if he was kicked in the face, and the knife was not in his hand, he was effectively nuetralized; and in such a case, the Chief Rabbi here in Israel ruled that such an attacker should be taken custody, not killed ( especially since he was a child.)
