Hadas Malka, 23, was stabbed to death by a Palestinian terrorist in Jerusalem’s Old city while on her way to respond to another threat nearby.
On Friday evening, three terrorists armed with guns and knives carried out an attack at Damascus Gate in the Old City of Jerusalem.
Two terrorists shot at a police patrol and tried stabbing officers before being shot dead. Border police ran to the scene. Among them was Staff Sgt. Hadas Malka, 23, who was subsequently stabbed and critically injured. She later died of her wounds.
A spokesman for the Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) named the three terrorists as Ibrahim Salah, Adel Ankoush and Osama Atta – Palestinians from the village of Deir Abu Mash’al, some 24 kilometers west of Ramallah.
