Yeshiva Attacker a Jerusalem Arab

Security forces said Thursday night that the terrorist who murdered seven students in the Merkaz HaRav Yeshiva in Jerusalem earlier in the evening was apparently a resident of the city.  The attacker, who was killed by security forces, was from the Jabal el-Mukaber neighborhood of Jerusalem.

As a resident of Jerusalem, the terrorist would have had an ID card similar to that given to Israeli citizens, security forces said, which could explain how he was able to gain access to the yeshiva.
