A 57-year-old Jordanian terrorist who crossed into Israel in the Beit Shean area earlier in the week made his way to Jerusalem and attacked on Shabbos.
A Jordanian man was shot dead Saturday in an alleged stabbing attack in East Jerusalem, according to Israeli police.
"The terrorist rushed toward him, whipped out a knife that he had in his possession, stormed him and began stabbing him".
The policeman was reportedly moderately injured, but managed to kill the attacker with a gun.
Israel's ambulance service Magen David Adom said the police officer was not severely wounded.

He added: "With the Conservatives nearly certain to win a majority, it's highly likely the pledge will be carried out". May said the plan would save about 17 million families on poor standard variable tariffs as much as £100 a year.
The Jordanian government denounced the "crime" of the death of its citizen, giving his full name as Mohammed Abdullah Salim al-Kassaji.
"The Israeli government as the occupying power bears responsibility over the shooting of a Jordanian citizen in occupied eastern Jerusalem today that caused his martyrdom", al Momani told Jordanian state news agency Petra. "It's time for Jordan to stop this double game". "Just as Israel condemns terror attacks in Jordan, Jordan must condemn terror attacks in Israel".
Israel has blamed the violence on incitement by Palestinian political and religious leaders compounded on social media sites.
Saba Nidal Obaid, 20, was shot in the stomach near the village of Nabi Saleh, north of Ramallah, during a protest in support of the 1,500 Palestinians on hunger strike across Israeli prisons.
According to Ma'an documentation, the Palestinian was the 22nd to have been killed by Israelis since the beginning of the year. He is due to travel to the Middle East this month and meet separately with Israeli and Palestinian leaders on May 22-23.
