The burial of Israeli teenager Aryeh Shechopek, 16, who died earlier in the day in the first of two terror explosions in Jerusalem, was attended by hundreds of people on Wednesday afternoon.

On his way to attend his religious school in Moshav Beit Meir, the adolescent was slain at a bus stop near the city’s entrance.

Authorities believe that two remotely detonated bombs packed with nails to maximize damage were the source of one explosion and another near the Ramot junction.

“On behalf of all Israeli citizens, I’m offering my condolences to the family of Aryeh Shechopek, who was slain in today’s horrific terrorist attack. Israeli Prime Minister-designate Benjamin Netanyahu tweeted, “May his memory be for a blessing.

In addition to Defense Minister Gantz, Israel Police Commissioner Kobi Shabtai, Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) chief Ronen Bar, and Public Security Minister Omer Bar-Lev, Prime Minister Yair Lapid called a security meeting on Wednesday.

“I would first like to send my condolences and the condolences of the government of Israel to the family of Aryeh Shechopek, of blessed memory. He was a boy who never wronged anyone in the world and was murdered simply because he was Jewish. I also wish a speedy and full recovery to the wounded,” said Lapid following the meeting.

Lisa Stadelbauer, the Canadian ambassador to Israel, verified Shechopek’s dual citizenship with Canada.
