Murdered terror victim identified as Canadian yeshiva student

 The victim murdered in one of Wednesday’s two terrorist bombing attacks in Jerusalem has been identified as 15-year-old Aryeh Schupak.

Schupak, a resident of the Har Nof neighborhood in western Jerusalem, was a yeshiva student at the Beit Meir Yeshiva.

He was waiting for a bus to his yeshiva Wednesday morning when a bomb exploded next to the bus stop, fatally injuring Schupak.

According to a report by Kan, Schupak holds Canadian citizenship.

A total of 19 people were injured in two terrorist bombings in Jerusalem, with 12 victims treated after the first bombing, near the entrance to the city, and seven more after a second explosion was reported shortly afterwards at Ramot Junction.

Two of the victims, including Schupak, were rushed to the hospital in critical condition, with two others evacuated in serious condition.

After his arrival at the hospital, Schupak succumbed to his injuries.

Police believe both bombs, which were concealed in bags, were placed by a single terrorist, who remotely detonated the explosives.

The bags contained marbles and nails, increasing the amount of shrapnel produced in the explosions.
