Authorities said Friday that a female Border Police officer died after succumbing to her wounds following a suspected coordinated terror attack carried out by three assailants in multiple areas of the Old City in Jerusalem.
Staff Sergeant Major Hadas Malka, 23, was taken to the emergency care unit at nearby Hadassah University Medical Center in critical condition after sustaining multiple stab wounds during the attack. Hospital officials later pronounced her dead after failing to save her life.
Police said that the suspects used an “automatic weapon and knives” during the assault.
“We saw two wounded civilians near the Damascus Gate, a man of about 40 and a young man of about 22,” an MDA spokesperson said in a statement.
“They were fully conscious and suffered from ‘penetrating injuries’…  We provided them with emergency medical treatment and evacuated them to the hospital with their condition being moderate and stable.” …
