A 32-year-old Israeli who was stabbed in Jerusalem's Old City multiple times in a terror attack succumbed to his wounds Sunday evening.

The 28-year-old terrorist, Abd al-Rahman Bani Fadel, who was later confirmed to be a Palestinian from the village of Aqraba near Nablus, was was shot dead by a police officer at the scene on HaGai Street, where he carried out his attack.
