On Friday night, a second victim of the blast in Jerusalem on Wednesday passed away from his injuries.
Since the explosion, Tadesa Tashuma, a 50-year-old Jerusalem resident who was gravely hurt in the first attack at the city’s entry, has remained very dangerous.
Despite the best efforts of the Shaarei Tzedek hospital’s medical staff, he succumbed to his wounds. His wife and six kids are left behind.
Aryeh Tschupak, 16, passed away on Wednesday from injuries received in the explosion.
“We are heartbroken by the demise of Tadesa Tashuma, who was seriously injured in last week’s incident,” said Prime Minister Yair Lapid in a eulogy for Tashuma.
Until the very last, the medical teams battled to save his life. Tashuma, who moved to Israel 21 years ago, is survived by his wife and two kids.
I express my sincere condolences to his family and friends on behalf of the Israeli government and the people. May God bless his memory.
Binyamin Netanyahu, the new prime minister, also expressed his condolences in a letter, adding, “Last week, I visited his loving family, who surrounded him in affection, and the physicians, who heroically fought for his life. In this challenging period, I welcome the family.
May God bless his memory.
The terrorists who carried out the attacks are still at large.
Security officials suspect that several terrorists acting independently from terror organizations were involved in the twin blast.
The bombs were planted and remotely detonated at periods when more people were around because the terrorists had a long-term assault strategy and appeared to be familiar with the attack areas.
