The Commissioner noted to his parents that he had spoken with the Minister of Internal Security and the Prime Minister and emphasized to them that they had acted properly and as is expected of Israeli police officers and fighters in an incident of this kind.

The commissioner also told the parents: "I have no doubt that two more heroes were added to the people of Israel this evening on Hanukkah.

"The despicable terrorist tried to murder a civilian and after they responded, he also tried to harm them and thanks to their reaction, the incident ended when the terrorist was neutralized and without further harm to either civilians or them."

The commander of the Border Police, Superintendent Amir Cohen, added: "Following the Commissioner's policy and the backing of the fighters, the corps and we are here by your side in everything you need.

We all watched the video and saw that your children are heroes and they acted as we teach them and expect them to be the citizens' protectors. " 

As you may recall, a storm broke out among the Palestinians and Israeli Arabs after documentation was published in which it appears that the terrorist was allegedly shot even while lying on the floor.

DIP began investigating the incident, although it is important to note that this is a routine procedure after such cases.

Earlier, the border commander, Superintendent Amir Cohen, responded to the allegations of unjustified firing on the neutralized terrorist.

"I fully support the fighters who responded as required to the incident and resulted in the neutralization of the terrorist and prevented him from further harming the fighters and civilians who were at the scene."

The commissioner, Superintendent Kobi Shabtai, also fully backed the fighters: Fast and determined to attack the civilian and to try to harm them as well. "

The organization "Up to Here" responded: "The interrogation of border guards who neutralized the terrorist is a spit in the face of all IDF soldiers and Israeli police. This step is a fatal blow to Israel's ability to fight terrorism. Terrorists must be eliminated and these two policemen deserve all Recognition and not for questioning. "

"The price of the investigation - may rise in the blood of civilians and fighters"

"The price of the investigation they opened in the DIP against Border Police fighters for killing the terrorist - could rise in the blood of civilians and fighters," says Lt. Col. Meir Indor, head of the organization of victims of terrorism, "Almagor."

"Even if nothing comes out of the investigation, it will next time cause a delay and fear of the immediate reactions needed during an attack. Experience shows that non-immediate elimination of the terrorist in an incident endangers the fighters and civilians, as happened with Chief of Staff Charlie Shlosh. "I shot the terrorist who killed two Jews - and the terrorist pulled out another knife and stabbed the three - to death," Indor said.

Indor stressed: "This was the case with those who paid with their lives due to a hidden explosive device on the terrorist's body. Non-DIP investigators will pay the price and Justice Minister Gideon Saar and the ombudsman to whom DIP investigators are subject to immediately stop the parade of folly."
