Pisgat Zeev terror attack - Oct. 12, 2015

He’s only 13 years old, but a young Jewish boy who was riding his bicycle minding his own business Monday afternoon is now fighting for life at the Mount Scopus campus of Jerusalem’s Hadassah Medical Center.

He is currently in critical but stable condition after undergoing life-saving surgery after being stabbed nearly to death by an Arab terrorist — a boy no older than himself — who attacked him near the Jerusalem Light Rail station on Sderot Moshe Dayan, in the northern Jerusalem neighborhood of Pisgat Ze’ev.

A 25-year-old Jewish man was badly wounded when he was stabbed by a second terrorist, age 17, in the same attack as well.

The Jewish teen was riding his bicycle when the attack began, with the terrorists first stabbing the young Jewish adult.

A passerby saw what was happening and began chasing the terrorists, who ran and then, spotting the teen on his bike, stabbed him as well.

One of the attackers was hit by a car; police shot and killed the second.

The attack took place just a half hour before the nation’s parliament was scheduled to meet to discuss the current security situation.

A massive police presence is still at the scene. Magen David Adom medics treated both victims on site before rushing them both to Jerusalem’s nearby Hadassah Medical Center at Mount Scopus.

  1. The low life terrorists stabbed innocent civilians with intent to kill them. Only when the IDF and or the police nutralized them does the world speak up against what the police and IDF are doing to the terrorists. The blame also lies with the UN.

  2. Hashem please clean up Your Land for Your Name Sake. Stop the murdering of our people, stop the hate on your own Land. Whatever has to be done to stop this please do it. Don't let another one of our littles be taken from us. Please Abba, please stop the death in your own land.

  3. I pray with all of my heart for this little boy. I saw this entire episode unfold on the BBC while in Mexico and cannot get this horror out of my heart and mind. The sweet boy was just racked… I am hopeful that God will heal him and allow him to survive this terror. I wish this world wasn't so hateful….
