Muslim terrorist eliminated in Jerusalem was mentally ill—condename for Jihad, family says

The family of a Muslim terrorist who was shot and eliminated after attempting to stab a Jerusalem Police officer on Friday claimed that he suffered from mental distress—codename for Jihad.

The Muslim terrorist, Ahmed Mahmad Ahmed Mahmid, was a 30-year-old resident of the Israeli Arab terror nest of Umm al-Fahm in northern Israel.

Nassim, Mahmid’s brother, told Israeli media that his brother was not functional and that he received psychological treatment. “We brought him back home a few years ago,” he said. “He was a patient at Sha’ar Menashe [a psychiatric medical center]. A sick man.”

The terror unfolded when the Muslim terrorist emerged from an area near the Temple Mount in Jerusalem’s Old City and started walking toward a team of policemen stationed in the area.



He then tried to stab one of them with a knife he had in his possession. A confrontation ensued, during which the terrorist was shot and eliminated.


The municipality of Umm al-Fahm criticized the elimination of the Muslim terrorist, accusing the police of “unreasonable behavior” and asserting that the terrorist could have been stopped without being eliminated.
