Horrifying Passover stabbing attack happened during busy Friday afternoon in downtown Jerusalem

By |

A young British woman visiting Israel was killed on Friday and two Israelis were wounded in a stabbing attack by a Palestinian Arab terrorist aboard Jerusalem’s light rail.

As the commuter train passed through the center of Jerusalem, the terrorist began stabbing the 25-year-old British woman multiple times in the upper body.

Off-duty police officers and civilians were quick to react and wrestled the terrorist to the ground.

An older Israeli man hurt his leg while trying to flee the scene, and a pregnant woman riding the train suffered light abdominal injuries when it came to a sudden emergency stop.

The terrorist was identified as a 57-year-old Palestinian Arab from a nearby village.
