MOSCOW, November 19 (Sputnik) — The fifth victim of the Jerusalem synagogue terror attack, Druze police officer Zidan Nahad Seif, has died at Hadassh Hospital, Haaretz reported.
Earlier reports said Seif was in a critical condition. He passed away late Tuesday.
On Tuesday morning, four people were killed and seven wounded in a terrorist attack, committed by two suspected Palestinian men with knives and axes at a synagogue in Jerusalem's Har Nof neighborhood. Both terrorists were shot dead by the police.
The incident is the latest in a series of terrorist attacks that have been on the rise in Jerusalem recently. The incident follows the alleged lynching of a Palestinian bus driver on Sunday, as well as the torching of a mosque and holy Qur'ans in the West Bank village of Al Mughayir by Jews last week.
