The victim of the Tel Aviv Dizengoff terror attack, carried out earlier this month, succumbed to his wounds and passed away on Monday, Tel Aviv’s Ichilov Hospital reported.

“We hoped and prayed. But, unfortunately, Or Eshkar, who was injured in the terror attack in Tel Aviv, succumbed to his wounds,” said Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu in a statement. “It’s heartbreaking. I extend my condolences to his family and friends. May his memory be a blessing.”

The victim, Or Eshkar, Hy”d, was critically wounded in the shooting attack, and after intensive surgeries, his condition initially stabilized. Despite this, his condition deteriorated again and he passed away earlier in the day on Monday.

Eshkar was one of three wounded when a Palestinian terrorist opened fire on Dizengoff Street in Tel Aviv on March 9. The terrorist, 23-year-old Mutaz al-Khuwaja, son of a Hamas operative, was killed by an off-duty special forces police officer who had been at the scene.

Eshkar’s death marks the 15th death of an Israeli due to Palestinian terror attacks since the beginning of 2023.
