Israeli police confirmed that a young woman died after being repeatedly stabbed on a train in West Jerusalem on Friday, April 14.
The woman, who has been described as being in her 20s by various official sources in Israel, sustained multiple injures when a man said to be from Rasel Amud in the West Bank attacked her on the city’s light railway near Tzahal Square, also known as Allenby Square.
