“I am visiting Israel with a Japanese group of people who love Israel. I was extremely surprised by the incident and in that moment I prayed and didn’t understand what it was that was hurting me,” the victim said.

She added that “I am still happy that I came to Israel and I don’t regret it. I will continue to tour and will rejoin the group shortly after I have been treated in Hadassah.”

Police forces are scouring the area in search of suspects.
