"Hashem trieth the righteous; but the wicked and him that loveth violence His soul hateth". Despite his injuries, the policeman killed the terrorist, preventing him from attacking others on the crowded street.

Muhammad Abdellah Salim al-Qasaji, 57, who police said had entered Israel on a tourist visa a week ago, approached an officer before stabbing him, according to eye witnesses.

Eye witnesses said that the incident took place at 1.30pm local time (1030 GMT) on Saturday near the Chain Gate which leads to Al Aqsa mosque. The policeman suffered stab wounds to the head and neck.

Israeli daily Haaretz said an officer, in his late thirties, was injured and was evacuated to Shaare Zedek Medical Center, after suffering moderate wounds, but remained fully conscious and in a stable condition, and later confirmed his death.
