Israeli man stabbed to death by Palestinian near Jerusalem holy site



An Israeli man has been stabbed to death by a Palestinian in the Old City of Jerusalem in the second fatal attack on Israelis in three days.

 
Adiel Colman, a father of four, was killed close to the Lions Gate entrance to one of the city's holiest sites.


Police shot dead the attacker, named by security officials as Rahman Bani Fadel, from the occupied West Bank.


It is the latest in a wave of attacks on Israelis, mostly by Palestinians or Israeli Arabs, since late 2015.


Mr Colman, 32, was stabbed as he made his way home from his job at the City of David museum, in the Jewish Quarter of the Old City.
He was rushed to hospital, where he died of his wounds.


Fadel, 28, came from the village of Akraba, near the northern town of Nablus, Israel's domestic security agency said.
