This morning we told you about the latest attack on Israel - three terrorists shot and stabbed police officers in Jerusalem's Old City. Now, Arutz Sheva reports that one of the officers, 19-year-old Hadar Cohen, has died from her injuries:

The 19-year-old Border Police officer critically injured in the shooting attack near Jerusalem's Damascus Gate on Wednesday afternoon has succumbed to her wounds.

Doctors at the Hadassah Mount Scopus hospital attempted for hours to save Hadar Cohen's life before eventually determining her death.

A resident of Or Yehuda, Cohen was deployed to the Border Police only two months ago.

She is survived by her parents, a brother and a sister.

Please keep Hadar's loved ones in your prayers, at the same time praying for the other officer wounded in the attack.
