JERUSALEM (VINnews) — Six years ago a terror attack took place in the Old City of Jerusalem during the Sukkot holiday. A young couple walking with their children in the Muslim quarter were attacked by a knife-wielding terrorist. The husband, Aharon Benita, was mortally injured and his wife Adele was moderately injured and cried out for help. A member of the staff of Ateret Kohanim yeshiva, Rabbi Nehemia Lavie, courageously rushed out to try and help the couple but the terrorist pounced on him from behind and stabbed him to death.

On Wednesday, a similar stabbing attack occurred as a terrorist stabbed two Border Police guards walking at almost the same spot. Rabbi Aviv Tzuberi, one of the Rosh Yeshivas of the Ateret Kohanim yeshiva and a close friend of Lavie, did not think twice. Emerging from the yeshiva with a handgun, the rosh yeshiva shot the terrorist dead, as evident in a video from security cameras. The two soldiers, a male and a female, were lightly and moderately injured in the stabbing attack.
