Police Commissioner Yaakov ‘Kobi’ Shabtai spoke to the two officers and praised them for their efforts in neutralizing the terrorist. “You performed excellently.

The commissioner added: “I want to express my appreciation to the police officers for striving for contact, focus on the mission, for their professionalism that in the end saw the elimination of the terrorist who carried out the attack. This is what we expect from our police officers. The officers acted as expected and required of officers in the Israel Police.”
