Heroes: Israel Police merit badge given to civilians from Brooklyn who neutralized a terrorist in Jerusalem
In May 2017, a Jordanian Muslim terrorist attacked a Police officer near the Lions’ Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem and brutally stabbed him 9 times.
Two orthodox Jews from Brooklyn overtook the terrorist and enable the officer to activate his weapon.
The Police officer responded with determination, eliminating the Muslim terrorist.
Today, the two civilians received the Israel Police civilian merit badge at the Israeli embassy in Washington DC.
