We are devastated to learn that 32-year-old Adiel Coleman succumbed to his wounds following a terror attack that took place earlier today in Jerusalem’s Old City. The father of four was stabbed multiple times as he tried to fend off the assailant. Coleman, a security guard who was unarmed and not on duty at the time of the attack, was rushed to Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center where he died of his injuries.
Today’s attack comes two days after a terrorist killed two Israeli soldiers in the northern West Bank and injured two others. The fallen soldiers are Captain Ziv Deus, 21, from the Azor Regional Council, and Sergeant Netanal Kahalani, 20, from the town of Eliakim.
Our hearts go out to the friends and family of the victims. May they find comfort among the mourners of Zion.
