MDA paramedic Betzalel Ben Hemo arrived at the scene of the shooting and began treating the victims. "We found a man outside, fully conscious, with three gunshot wounds, he told The Jerusalem Post. "We evacuated him from the scene, and asked him to breath slowly," he said.

The gunshot wound victim managed to tell Ben Hemo that there are no more terrorists active in the area. "We rushed him to the Sha'arei Tzedek Medical Center," the paramedic said.

"Unfortunately, we have recently been getting used to these scenes, which remind us of past terror attacks. They are returning with full force," he added.
