Second Yerushalayim Terror Attack Victim Dies

YERUSHALAYIM (Hamodia Staff) -

A 22-year-old woman who was critically injured in the hit-and-run terrorist attack in Yerushalayim last Wednesday died of her wounds on Sunday evening.

She is the second victim of the attack to die. The first, 3-month-old Chaya Zisel Braun, Hy”d, died shortly after the incident on Wednesday.

The woman was a citizen of Ecuador who reportedly came to Israel with the intention of converting to Judaism. The woman’s family has asked the media not to publish her name.

She had spent the past two months in a program for conversion candidates with other women from South America.

“She was wounded while on her way to a Torah lesson,” a friend of the woman told Ynet. “She was a quiet girl who believed in her path, fought to become a Jew and nothing bothered her.”

The announcement of her death was made at Hadassah University Medical Center where she was taken immediately after the attack.
