‘I was stabbed – I’ll join the army and give my all’ says heroic Jew stabbed in the back by muslim arabs
Stabbing victim in today’s attack near Damascus Gate made aliyah from Brooklyn in order to join IDF. Only became a citizen last month.
The 17-year-old Jewish youth who was stabbed in a terror attack near Jerusalem’s Damascus Gate spoke with reporters from his hospital bed.
Though his name has not been released, he is originally from Brooklyn, New York. He made aliyah last month in order to join the army and is currently studying in a pre-military academy next to Jerusalem.
“I turned around and saw them running, and I started to run. I understood that it was a terror attack and that I had been stabbed. I didn’t see the terrorist, he came from behind and stabbed me. There were two of them with knives, they looked young… I was never afraid. God willing, I will enlist in the army and join Sayeret Matkal.”
Dr. Osnat Levtzion-Korah, the head of Hadassah
