Terror attacks still threaten the Holy City, as we learn from The Times of Israel that a shooting attack took the life of one IDF soldier. Five other people were wounded from the attack near Jerusalem on Thursday:

Cpl. Avraham Fetena, 20, a Military Police soldier from Haifa was critically wounded in the attack and later succumbed to his wounds at Jerusalem’s Shaare Zedek Medical Center, the army said.

One of the victims of the attack said all the doors of a white Skoda opened at once, with each gunman shooting in a different direction, and security forces quickly returning fire…

Shaare Zedek and Hadassah each said they had received three people with gunshot wounds. Police said the six gunshot victims were members of security forces, while at least two civilians were treated at the scene for acute anxiety.
