A 23-year-old British student was murdered after being stabbed in a terror attack at IDF Square on Jerusalem’s light rail on Friday afternoon.
The Arab terrorist was arrested after a number of police officers managed to gain control over him.
Magen David Adom (MDA) paramedics arrived at the scene to find the woman lying on the ground unconscious after having suffered multiple stab wounds.
Medics carried out first aid emergency treatment on the victim, before she was hurriedly evacuated to the Hadassah Har Hatzofim Medical Center in the capital.
In addition, medical teams provided medical treatment to a 30-year-old pregnant woman who sustained light injuries as the light rail abruptly stopped.
A 50-year-old man also suffered light wounds in his leg and chest while trying to escape from the chaos.
The attack comes during the holiday of Passover, a period during which security forces have ramped up their level of caution and alertness in anticipation of renewed efforts by terrorists to rock the recent period of comparative stability.
Last month, the head of the Shin Bet warned during a Foreign Affairs and Security Committee meeting that “We are now approaching the festival of Passover. There is no doubt that the terror infrastructure, especially Hamas, will try to incite and carry out attacks.”
In an effort to prevent the infiltration of any terrorists seeking to strike during the 7-day Passover holiday, a general closure was imposed on Monday at midnight in Judea and Samaria and is set to continue until midnight this Monday at the conclusion of the festival.
