Arthur Chaimov was an armed man at that timeAccording to Israeli television Keshet 12, he told Keshet 12 he didn’t hesitate to confront and shoot his attacker, an Israeli Bedouin of Israeli nationality who was believed to be affiliated with Jihadism.
He explained that he had arrived at the roundabout just near the BIG shopping mall and that his first thought was that there’d been a traffic accident. “When I got there with the bus, I thought,What can I do? How do you manage it?. I didn’t see the terrorist at first,” he notes.
“I saw a lot of people gathered and I saw someone near a vehicle with a knife. I wanted to make sure and not assume. [erróneamente] that he was a terrorist,” says Chaimov. “I got out the vehicle and I took my gun. Then I looked closer to see that I actually had a knife.. I saw a man [yaciendo] injured. I said to him many times, “I’m asking for you to put your knife down.” You will not be shot. He said no.”

The bus driver said that he tried his best not to shoot the terrorist and that it was a terrible thing to have done so.
“You don’t need to kill it, but it is a person.… We are human beings, not animals”, explains Chaimov sadly. “I am not used to a situation like that, to shoot a person. I feel sorry for him, but he brought it on himself,” he adds.
