Jordan holds Israel responsible for death of its citizen
    2017-May-15  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

    THE Jordanian Government on Saturday denounced the death of a Jordanian citizen, in occupied Jerusalem, after he “carried out a stabbing attack targeting Israeli police officers.”

    Dr. Mohammad Al Momani, Jordan’s Minister of State for Media Affairs, said that his country and its embassy in Tel Aviv, are following the developments closely, and want “a full and a credible investigation into the events the led to his death.”

    He said that the Jordanian citizen, Mohammad Abdullah al-Kasji, 57, was killed in occupied East Jerusalem, therefore, Israel, as the country that illegally occupies the city, is responsible for any escalation.

    Israeli police reported that al-Kasji was part of a tour group that entered Israel from Jordan five days ago. Apparently, he stayed behind when his fellow tourists returned home.

    Two people coming from the direction of the Western Wall tried to help the policeman repel the stabber. “When the policeman noticed that the terrorist was still fighting him with the knife in his hand, and despite the same policeman’s injury, he managed to pull out his weapon, cock it and neutralize the attacker,” the police said.

    Police detained the owner of a booth near the scene, for trying to prevent a bystander from helping the policeman who was under attack.

    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 37-year-old policeman was taken to Sharei Tzedek hospital and is listed as moderately wounded.

    Israel’s Security Minister Gilad Erdan praised the police officer for his professionalism and bravery, for preventing a much worse terror attack from happening.
