He is survived by his wife and a 3-year-old son.

The killer, identified as Ibrahim al-Akary, 48, a member of Hamas who lived in the Shuafat neighborhood of Jerusalem, was shot and killed by police at the scene.

The attack took place at a light-rail station on the corner of Bar Lev and Shimon Hatzadik streets. The terrorist continued driving along the tracks, hitting several cars along the way.

After crashing into another vehicle, al-Akary got out of the commercial van with a metal bar and began attacking a group of policemen before border police at the scene shot and killed him.
