Hadassah University Medical Center in Jerusalem’s Ein Kerem announced on Wednesday that one of the victims in the Palestinian knife attack in the Old City just hours earlier died of his wounds.

The news came just moments after Shaare Zedek Medical Center announced the first fatality, Ofer Ben Ari, 40, from Jerusalem.

Two Israelis were seriously wounded in the knife attack carried out by two Palestinian assailants near Jaffa Gate. A third Israeli was wounded by accidental gunfire from a police officer who tried to subdue one of the stabbers.
