A public murder, amidst the eyes of children, elders and woman; that has been a casual incident happening in the holiest city on earth in the last 2-3 years.
The series of stabbings in communal places in Jerusalem has been a horrific scene repeated every week or couple, resulting from the ongoing heated conflict between the 2 main ethnic factions in the land.
The Israeli-Palestinian strife is now over half a century old and has claimed the lives of hundreds of thousands over the feud.
The victims that have to bear the consequences of the hate are often innocent people that do not relate to any of the contentions between the two clans.
A young British woman has been stabbed to critical conditions and died on her way to the nearest hospital.
The perpetrator also injured a 30 year old pregnant woman and a 50 year old man. The 57 year old outlaw was immediately arrested by the police and was recognized to be a familiar face for security forces.
