Paramedics transported him to Sheba Medical Center at Tel Hashomer where he ultimately passed away after efforts were made to save his life.

An initial investigation into the incident found that the soldier who was near the train station was attacked by a man armed with a knife who jumped on him and began to stab him in his upper body. The suspect appeared to be attempting to take the soldier's weapon.

Shiloni was posthumously promoted to Staff-Sergeant and his funeral is scheduled to take place at 2 p.m. Tuesday at Jerusalem's Mount Herzl. The IDF conveyed his family's request for the media to abstain from coverage of the funeral.

His death marked the second terror death of the day. Later on Monday afternoon, a 25-year-old woman named Dalia Lamkus was killed, also in a stabbing attack, near Gush Etzion.
