Arab Terrorists Attack Jerusalem's Merkaz HaRav Yeshiva: 8 Dead
by Nissan Ratzlav-Katz (As reported in Arutz Sheva)
(IsraelNN.com) Two Arab terrorists infiltrated Jerusalem's Merkaz HaRav Yeshiva at around 8:30 Thursday night and murdered eight Jews. At least 40 people have been wounded; one is in critical condition and a second victim was wounded moderately. The attackers opened fire on the students before one of them was gunned down himself. A second terrorist apparently escaped and may be hiding in the yeshiva building. Security forces are deployed in the surrounding neighborhood, with police saying that all the students have been evacuated.
50 ambulances responded to the scene, which emergency responders have called "a major incident."
The Merkaz HaRav Yeshiva is located near the entrance to Jerusalem, in the Kiryat Moshe neighborhood. The yeshiva, founded by Rabbi Avaraham Yitzhak Kook, is at the heart of the national-religious movement in Israel.
