An Israeli security guard is in serious condition after he was stabbed by a terrorist in Jerusalem’s Old City on Sunday afternoon.
[UPDATE: The stabbing victim has passed away from his wounds.]
He was identified as 28-year-old Abd al-Rahman Bani Fadel, a Palestinian father of two from the village of Aqraba, near Shechem, the Shin Bet said. He was shot dead by police who rushed to the scene on Hagai Street in the Muslim Quarter of the Old City.
United Hatzalah volunteer first responder Dr. Yishai Ben Uri Zilbeger said: “After being notified by United Hatzalah’s dispatch and Command center to the incident in the Old City, I arrived at the scene and found one person in their 20’s suffering from a stab wound in their upper chest. He was in serious condition. I treated him at the scene for his injuries following which he was transported from the location of the incident to the hospital for further care and observation.”
The security guard was rushed by Magen David Adom paramedics to Hadassah Hospital Mount Scopus.
On Friday, a Palestinian terrorist rammed into a patrol of IDF soldiers with his car on route 585 between the settlements of Mevo Dotan and Hermesh, killing two of the soldiers and moderately-to-seriously wounding two others.
