Israeli Police Officer, 19, Dies from Palest. Attack; Another Officer in Serious Condition from Attack

One of two Israeli Border Police officers seriously injured in an attack by three Palestinian assailants in Jerusalem today (February 3, 2016) has died, according to the JTA (Jewish Telegraphic Agency) website.

Hadar Cohen, 19, of Or Yehuda in central Israel, died just hours after she was critically wounded today near the Old City, outside the Damascus Gate. She had recently joined the Border Police and was still in training.

The assailants -- who entered Israel illegally from the Jenin area in the West Bank -- were shot and killed by other officers, according to police.

Like Cohen, the other injured officer was taken to Hadassah Hospital at Mount Scopus. A hospital spokesman said the officer, 18, was in serious condition, having received stab wounds across her body, including her head.
