Border Policeman Binyamin Yakobovich, Hy”d, 19, who was critically wounded in a terror attack north of Chevron last Wednesday, died of his wounds on Sunday evening at Hadassah Medical Center in Ein Karem, Yerushalayim.

The Palestinian driver was shot dead at the scene.

According to a police statement, Staff Sergeant Yakobovich, who was drafted into the Border Police a year-and-a-half ago, is survived by his parents, brother, and two sisters.
