Border Police officers Hadas Malka and Solomon Gavriaya to receive citations of bravery
Two border police officers, Hadas Malka and Solomon Gavriya, will receive the Police Commissioner’s citation for their struggle against Muslim terrorists at terror attacks in which civilians were saved at the cost of their lives.
23-year-old Border Police officer Hadas Malka was murdered in a combined shooting and stabbing attack in Jerusalem’s Old City.
On 16 June 2017, two Muslim terrorists opened fire at a Border Police force while a third terrorist brutally stabbed Malka. She suffered critical injuries, was evacuated to the Hadassah Mount Scopus Hospital, where she later succumbed to her wounds.
All three terrorists were shot and eliminated by security forces at the scene.
ISIS claimed responsibility for the terror attack.
20-year-old Border Police Officer Solomon Gavriya was one of three victims murdered in a terrorist attack in Har Adar, a Jewish community located northwest of Jerusalem.
On the morning of 26 September 2017, a Muslim terrorist who held a work permit allowing him to work in the Jewish community, drew his weapon and began firing, murdering Gavriya and two security guards, Youssef Ottman and Or Arish.
