Second Victim Dies of Injuries From Jerusalem Light Rail Attack

A woman critically injured in a terror attack in Jerusalem has died of her injuries.

The 22-year-old tourist from Ecuador died Sunday at Hadassah Medical Center, four days after a Palestinian man drove his car into a light rail station near Ammunition Hill, in northern Jerusalem, as passengers were disembarking.

Her death Sunday brings the death toll in the Oct. 22 deadly car attack to two. The first casualty was American citizen Chaya Zissel Braun, a three-month-old girl. At least six others were injured in the attack.

The driver was shot by police as he attempted to flee the scene and died later in Jerusalem’s Shaarey Tzedek hospital. The driver, Abdelrahman Al-Shaludi, a Palestinian resident of the eastern Jerusalem neighborhood of Silwan, was scheduled to be buried Sunday evening, after delays due to Palestinian rioting throughout eastern Jerusalem.
