JERUSALEM — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met today (November 12) in the Knesset with House of Commons Sergeant-at-Arms Kevin Vickers, who shot the terrorist who perpetrated an attack in Ottawa on October 22.
Vickers described to Netanyahu the day’s events and how he stopped the terrorist who shot the Canadian honour guard, Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, and entered Parliament’s Centre Block.
Netanyahu praised Vickers on his bravery and quick response, which saved the lives of many.
“This terror attack in Ottawa proves, once again, that Islamic radical terrorism has no limits and respects no borders. Israel and Canada stand side-by-side in the international effort to eliminate terrorism,” said Netanyahu.
