Yuval Doron Kastelman, 38 from Mevasseret Zion, an Israeli who helped neutralize the terrorists who carried out the shooting attack at the entrance to the city of Jerusalem on Thursday morning and was accidentally shot by soldiers, was pronounced dead at Shaare Zedek Hospital on Thursday night.

This brings the death toll in the attack to four.

An initial investigation of the attack found that IDF soldiers who were involved in neutralizing the terrorists accidentally shot Kastelman, who had neutralized the terrorists first.

Footage from the scene showed the man raising his hands while sitting on his knees on the road before being shot by the soldiers. He was evacuated to hospital in critical condition, and later succumbed to his injuries.

Rabbi Elimelech Wasserman, Livia Dickman and Chana Ifergan were murdered in Thursday’s shooting attack.

The Israel Security Agency (Shin Bet) reported that the terrorists who carried out the attack were identified with Hamas and previously served prison terms after being convicted of acts of terrorism.

One of the terrorists has been named as Morad Namer, 38 years old and a resident of Jerusalem. Namer was jailed between the years 2010-2020, for intention to carry out terror attacks directed by Gaza. He is affiliated with Hamas.

The second terrorist was named as Ibrahim Namer, Morad's 30-year-old brother, who is also a resident of Jerusalem and affiliated with Hamas. He served time in 2014, for terror activities.
