August 3 , 2015
Shira Banki, a 16-year-old girl who was stabbed at Jerusalem’s Gay Pride march, has died from her injuries. The Israeli teenager was one of the six persons attacked at Thursday’s event.
The attacker was an ultra-Orthodox Jew, Yishai Schlissel, who had recently been released from prison after serving a sentence for a similar attack ten years ago.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said his government will have “zero tolerance” when it comes to Jewish extremists.
