JERUSALEM (VINnews) — Amir Sidawi, the terrorist who perpetrated the attack near David’s Tomb on Saturday night, injuring 8 people, two of them seriously, turned himself in to police after taking a taxi from near the Shaarei Tzedek hospital, where his victims are hospitalized. Sidawi had succeeded in escaping the manhunt for nearly six hours before he came of his own volition to the Moriah police station.
Shalom, the taxi driver who unwittingly drove the terrorist to his destination, told the Galei Yisrael news site that “I picked up the terrorist near the Beitar Jerusalem training ground (adjacent to Shaarei Tzedek hospital). He stopped me in the street, asked if I was available. He spoke good Hebrew and got in the car. I noticed that he was a bit afraid. I dropped him off near the police station and suddenly after another 400 meters I heard police vans wailing behind me. The policeman said that ‘G-d loves you.’ I looked around and saw the gun with the bullets on the back seat. He could have shot me in the head, I had a miracle.”
