Palestinian Gunman Kills Israeli Security Officer in Tel Aviv

(Times of Israel) Emanuel Fabian - Chen Amir, 42, a municipal patrol officer, was killed by a Palestinian shooter in Tel Aviv on Saturday evening. The gunman, from Palestinian Islamic Jihad, was killed by the officer's colleague. The two security officers approached the Palestinian man in the Nachalat Binyamin neighborhood at a time when dozens of restaurants, cafes, and bars were packed. The Palestinian, Kamel Abu Bakr, 22, pulled out a handgun and opened fire, hitting Amir, a married father of three. Abu Bakr had been wanted by Israeli security forces and had been hiding in the Jenin refugee camp for the past six months. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Amir "stopped with his own body a major attack and saved many lives."
