Update: Woman Wounded in Second Jerusalem Stabbing, Suspect Captured [photos]

Sunday, November 29th, 2015

A woman was wounded on Shamgar Street in Jerusalem, near the Osher Ad supermarket, in a second terrorist stabbing attack in Jerusalem on Sunday morning, just after 10 AM.

Seeing the attack, a passing bus driver jumped from his bus, pulled the wounded woman onto his #418 bus and drove her away to safety.

The Arab terrorist then fled into a building construction site in the former Tnuva complex, in the Jerusalem Romema neighborhood, and security forces began searching the very large area.

Update: A suspect believed to be the terrorist has been captured in one of the building sites, after an hour long search.

The suspect, a 17.5 year-old-man from the PA territories has connected himself to the attack. Two additional Arabs from the PA were discovered in the building and also arrested.

The wounded woman, a foreign resident in her 30s, is in moderate condition with a knife wound in the back, and has been transported to Shaarei Tzedek hospital.

Hareidi Bus Bomb Driver: “I’m No Hero”

Sunday, December 22nd, 2013

Michael Yoger, the bus driver who evacuated his bus before the bomb exploded on it today said that he is not a hero.

Yoger, a Haredi Jew with 35 years as a driver, was driving a Dan bus #240 from Bnei Brak to Bat Yam, when a passenger said she saw a suspicious bag at the back of the bus.

Yoger asked the passengers if the large black bag with wires hanging out belonged to anyone, when no one said it did, he pulled the bus over and made everyone get out, saving the lives of everyone on his bus.

Yoger was the last person to evacuate the bus.

A police car arrived, and 10 minutes later the bomb blew up the bus, injuring the police sapper who was approaching the bus at the time.
