Israeli woman thought missing following Berlin terror attack found dead
An Israeli woman thought missing following a terror attack in Berlin, Germany earlier in the week was discovered dead on Thursday morning.
Dalia Elyakim, vacationing with her husband in the German capital, was the victim of a terror attack after a truck ploughed into a Berlin Christmas market, killing 12 people, on Monday evening.
Elyakim’s husband, Rami, was seriously injured in the incident and remains hospitalized after recovering from surgery.
The 25-ton truck, belonging to a Polish freight company, smashed into wooden huts serving mulled wine and sausages, also injured about 45 people.
ISIS has claimed responsibility, as it did for a similar attack in July when a Tunisian-born man rammed a truck through a crowd celebrating Bastille Day in the French city of Nice. Eighty-six people were killed, and the driver was shot dead by police.
German police are currently looking for a Tunisian terrorist, described as “armed and dangerous,” after finding an identity document under the driver’s seat of the truck.
The document was in the name of Anis A., born in the southern city of Tataouine in 1992. The man is also believed to use false names, according to a statement released by German authorities.
