A 21-year-old British exchange student was stabbed to death by a Palestinian killer in Jerusalem today. Her name is Hannah Bladon and was reportedly travelling on the Jerusalem Light Rail near Old City when she was attacked.

Police spokesman Micky Rosenfeld told Sky News the assailant got on the train at Damascus Gate, before taking a knife out of his bag and stabbing the victim “multiple times in the upper part of the body”.

Israel’s ambassador to London Mark Regev tweeted: “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.”

The Foreign Office has said: “We can confirm the tragic death of a British national in Jerusalem. We are providing support to her family at this difficult time and are in touch with local authorities.”

Bladon, a Birmingham University religious studies student, was partway through an exchange program with the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.

The Rothberg International School confirmed she had been taking classes in bible studies, archaeology and Hebrew during her exchange programme.

They described her as “an inquisitive and adventurous student who made the most of her opportunity to learn and experience life in Israel.”

The University of Jerusalem has condemned what it calls “an act of terror” on “a student who came to Jerusalem to study and widen her academic horizons.”

Israel’s Shin Bet security agency identified 57-year-old Palestinian Jamil Tamimi as her attacker, adding that he suffered with mental health problems and had previously tried to take his own life.

In a statement, Shin Bet said: “This is one of many instances where a Palestinian suffering personal strife… chooses to carry out an attack in order to find release for his problem.”

At the time of the incident, Old City was packed with people celebrating Good Friday and Passover.

Israeli authorities continue to be on high alert over the Passover season.

Our hearts and prayers go out to this young lady’s family and friends.

God Bless.
