Arab Terrorist Leaps to His Death Fleeing Police
An Arab terrorist on Monday fell to his death while trying to escape arrest at the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Kalandia.
Border Police forces had entered Kalandia to arrest two terrorist suspects.
One of the two suspects tried to flee the police across a roof, and the forces shot him in the leg to stop him. He nevertheless continued trying to escape, and as he attempted to jump to another roof he fell to his death.
The forces had called on the running suspect to stop, before shooting at his lower extremities, police said.
“Despite that, the suspect continued to run and when he attempted to get to the roof of another building, he fell off it and was mortally wounded,” a statement read.
A paramedic with the troops attempted to treat him, but was forced to pronounce him dead at the scene, police said.
The two suspects had “planned a terror attack in Israel,” according to the statement.
