Eliyahu David Kay, 26, from Modi'in who worked as an information guide at the Western Wall plaza, was killed in a terrorist attack in Jerusalem today (Sunday).

The attack took place this morning near the Temple Mount, when a terrorist shot Elijah to death while on his way to work, injuring three other people.

Eliyahu's death was determined in the trauma unit at Hadassah Mount Scopus.

He is evacuated with a severe head injury during resuscitation operations and with no signs of life.



The Western Wall Heritage Foundation and Rabbi of the Western Wall, Shmuel Rabinowitz, said they were "in pain and in tears."

Elijah Kay, a new immigrant from South Africa, "brightened the face of every man, made his work sacred with devotion and loyalty," they described.



The terrorist, Fadi Abu Shahidam, who was shot and killed, was known to the police on criminal grounds.

"However, he was not previously detained by the GSS, and was a well-known teacher on the Temple Mount. Homeland Security Minister Amar Bar-Lev arrived at the scene and noted that the terrorist is a member of Hamas' political wing who prayed in the Old City regularly." "His wife fled abroad three days ago and he used standard weapons that are not commonly used in Israel."

At the beginning of the cabinet meeting, Prime Minister Naftali Bennett referred to the "difficult" attack, as he put it, that took place in Jerusalem.

"I received an update on the details of the incident, there was a swift action by our forces," he said.

"The policemen who were at the scene very quickly neutralized the terrorist."

The Prime Minister instructed the security forces to prepare accordingly "and to show vigilance, also for fear of inspirational attacks".



Hamas and other Palestinian organizations in the Gaza Strip welcomed the attack.

"The revolutionary youths will continue their legitimate struggle until they achieve their freedom, liberate their land and regain control of the holy sites," said Hazem Qassem, a Hamas spokesman.
