TRAGEDY UPON TRAGEDY: Man Who Heroically Shot Jerusalem Terrorists Mistakenly Killed By Police

A man who shot and killed at least one terrorist Thursday morning in the midst of the terror attack on Thursday at a Jerusalem bus stop, killing 3, was tragically shot and killed by police who mistook him for a terrorist, bringing the terror attack’s death toll to 4.

The latest victim was identified as Yuval Doron Castelman, 38, of Mevaseret Tzion, was on the other side of the road when the terrorists began shooting. He put his car into park, pulled out his gun and charged at the terrorists, taking out at least one of them.

In the chaos, security forces shot Yuval as well, thinking he was one of the terrorists. He was critically injured, and was rushed to Shaarei Tzedek Medical Center, where he sadly passed away.

“Yuval was always a hero and the first to leap to save lives, and he did so this time as well” his heartbroken family said in a statement.

The other victims include HaDayan HaRav Elimelech Wasserman HY”D, 73, from Rechov Sorotzkin in Jerusalem; Mrs. Chana Ifirgan HY”D, 67, a school principal from Beit Shemesh; and Mrs. Liba Dikman HY”D, 24, from Har Nof.

  1. They shot him after he put his hands in the air and lied down on the ground. This was criminal negligence and the soldiers should be prosecuted. I am fine with killing terrorists on the scene but you need to make sure you’re killing the terrorist.

  4. Avraham613:
    This is silly Zionist propaganda.
    The Zionists invaded a century ago, and do not represent “Jews”.
    The Zionists waged terror and a war in order to establish their State, against the will of the nations. They further took territory not originally intended for them, like Jerusalem which was to be international.

  5. Chanauz, what kind of tech do you imagine could possibly tell the difference between an armed civilian and a terrorist? It’s impossible, even in theory, let alone in practice in the heat of battle. Friendly fire has always been part of war, and there is no way to prevent it; we just have to accept it. Would you want soldiers hesitating in the middle of a battle and end up not shooting a terrorist who then goes on to kill more people?!
