Israeli police department foreign press spokesperson Micky Rosenfeld reported that the funeral for the terrorist who plowed his car into a group of innocent Israelis on Wednesday, Oct. 22, will take place tonight, Sunday, Oct. 26.
The terrorist murdered two – a three-month old infant and a twenty-two year old South American woman in the process of converting to Judaism – and injured seven others.
Police security measures are in place in Jerusalem to prevent and respond to any incidents, Rosenfeld tweeted.
The terrorist, abd al-Rahman al-Shaloudi, died after being shot by Israeli police as he attempted to flee the scene of the attack. There has already been a “symbolic” funeral held for Shaloudi earlier today. The procession started at Shaloudi’s home neighborhood of Silwan and ended at the al-Aksa mosque.
Chaya Zissel Braun, the infant who died a few hours after the terrorist attack, was buried the same evening, in accordance with Jewish custom of burying the dead as soon as possible.
Shaloudi was a member of the Hamas terrorist organization and was praised by Palestinian Arab officials for his “heroism.” His family members proudly displayed his “shaheed” picture outside their home.Lori Lowenthal Marcus
