Israel Foreign Ministry reacted to what it called a “horrible headline” that the American CBS news outlet composed following a Jerusalem terror attack on Wednesday.
“3 Palestinians killed as daily violence grinds on,” read the CBS headline. At around 5:30 p.m. Israel time, CBS changed the headline to: “Israeli police kill 3 alleged Palestinian attackers.”
Foreign Ministry spokesman Emmanuel Nachshon said the headline was “biased and dishonest,” and an example of “unparalleled chutzpah.” He said the ministry was working to “correct” the headline.
Three Arab terrorists arrived at the scene armed with Carl Gustav rifles, knives and explosive devices. The Border Police unit noticed them and became suspicious. One terrorist presented a national ID card to a Border Police officer as another pulled out his weapon and opened fire.
One of the guards, Hadar Cohen, 19, was critically wounded and later died from her injuries while hospitalized in Hadassah Medical Center.
Other Border Police officer, 20, was seriously wounded and also taken to Hadassah Medical Center with multiple stab wounds, where her condition improved to moderate.
