A security guard at the Western Wall shot and killed an Israeli Jew, believing he was a Palestinian militant. The man, in his 40s, was inside a men’s restroom at the holy site. The security guard said he overheard the man chanting “Allahu Akbar”, Arabic for “God is Greatest” behind a closed door of the cubicle. The security guard fired multiple rounds at the man as he exited the bathroom. According to Reuters, police said the guard saw the man start to remove something suspicious from his jacket. The Western Wall is one of Judaism’s holiest sites, where thousands worship every week and is a flashpoint in cross-cultural tensions in the region.
