An Israeli man was shot and killed by a security guard at one of Judaism’s holiest sites in Jerusalem, the Western Wall. He was apparently mistaken for a Palestinian fighter, police said.

The police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld said, “There was a Jewish guy, an Israeli guy, who was in the bathroom area.

He for some reason shouted ‘Allahu Akbar’.

A security guard drew his weapon and fired several shots at the suspect. He died from his wounds a few moments ago.”

The shooting took place shortly before 8 am in front of the Wall filled with worshippers for morning prayers ahead of the start of the Jewish Sabbath at sundown.

The site was closed to the public for at least an hour afterwards. Paramedic Zeevi Hessed said that his team rushed to the scene as reports of a shooting came in.

“When we reached the place, we saw him lying at the Western Wall plaza. He had been shot in several parts of his body. Sadly there was nothing we could do but declare him dead.”

Rosenfeld said that an investigation had been opened into the shooting. Public radio quoted the private security guard as telling police investigators that he thought the man, 46, was pulling something from his pocket as he shouted, and was about to attack him.

But according to police they didn’t find anything suspicious in the man’s pocket.

Unclear circumstances

Some local media said the dead man was believed to be mentally disturbed.

Witnesses as saying that the guard fired between seven and 10 bullets and that the fire was unjustified and that the man appeared to be a harmless eccentric.

Rosenfeld said the circumstances were still unclear.

“We’re looking into the background: why the security officer opened fire and what the motives were of the guy, the 46-year-old – it’s very strange behaviour.”

The Western Wall is venerated by Jews as the last remnant of the wall supporting the Second Temple, which was destroyed by the Romans in 70 AD.

Above it is the compound housing the Dome of the Rock and the al-Aqsa mosque, the third holiest site in Islam.

Known to Jews as the Temple Mount, the compound is a deeply sensitive location where clashes frequently break out between Palestinian worshippers and Israeli forces.

The incident occurred in one of Jerusalem’s most sensitive areas, where thousands of people worship each week.

The plaza where the wall is located is next to the Temple Mount, revered by Jews as the place where two biblical temples stood, and the site of Islam’s third holiest mosque, al-Aqsa.
