Rabbi Reuven Biermacher, one of Wednesday's Jerusalem stabbing victims, was laid to rest late Wednesday night in Givat Shaul's Har Hamenuchot Cemetery in Jerusalem, Israel Radio reported.

Ofer Ben-Ari, 40, the attack's second victim, is to be buried Thursday afternoon at the same location.

The two Israeli men died as the result of a terrorist attack in Jerusalem on Wednesday afternoon. One was accidentally shot by Border Police officers as they fired at and killed the two knife-wielding Palestinian terrorists near the Old City’s Jaffa Gate.
