    The 2017 Jerusalem Light Rail stabbing was a stabbing attack and suspected act of terrorism that occurred on Good Friday, April 14, 2017, on Jerusalem Light Rail's car. In the attack, A British student was stabbed to death by a Palestinian. Two others, one a pregnant woman, were injured in the incident.[1]


    The attack occurred at about 1:00 pm April 14, 2017, as a knife-welding man stabbed a 23 years old British tourist. An off-duty police officer riding the light rail pulled an emergency brake and tackled the perpetrator, who was then arrested.[2][3][4][3]
    According to Israel's domestic security service, Shin Bet, the attacker was known to the authorities and this may have been a “suicide by soldier,” a phenomenon seen in other incidents in the last 18 months, "in which a Palestinian suffering from mental health or personal issues has chosen to carry out an attack as a way out of his problems."[4]


    Stabbing attacks were rare in Israel in 2017, although there was a spate of them in the fall of 2015 and early 2016.[5] The attack took place as crowds of pilgrims form around Israel and the world gathered in the center of Jerusalem ot celebrate Good Friday.[5]


    The attacker was Gamil Tamimi (57), a Palestinian Arab from the Ras al-Amud neighborhood of East Jerusalem who was known to security services had recently been released from a mental health facility where he was treated for attempted suicide.[6][4]
    In 2011 Tamimi was convicted of molesting his daughter.[6]


    Hannah Bladon, a 21-year-old student in Israel on an exchange program from the University of Birmingham was killed in the attack.[7][8][9][2]


    • Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu said: "Radical Islamic terrorism is striking world capitals. Regretfully, terrorism struck today in Israel's capital – Jerusalem."[6][3]
    • Israeli President Reuven Rivlin said “The bitter news of the young woman’s death in a terror attack in Jerusalem fills me with deep sorrow.”[10]
    • Mark Regev Israeli ambassador to the UK, said: “My thoughts are with the family and friends of UK student Hannah Bladon, who was murdered in a senseless act of terror in Jerusalem today."[4]
