Jerusalem attack victim succumbs to wounds

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.

Hadar Cohen was rushed to a hospital in critical condition with multiple wounds to her upper body. She died several hours later.

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.

The second policewoman, with serious injuries, was not identified

A third victim, identified only as a 20-year-old Israeli, was very lightly wounded and treated at the scene.
