U.S., French, Ethiopian nationals among dead


The dead in a terrorist attack on the Mercaz Harav yeshiva included U.S., French and Ethiopian citizens.

The Israel Project reported that Avraham David Moses, 16, was a dual U.S.-Israeli citizen; Segev Peniel Avihai, 15, was a French citizen; and Doron Meherete Trunoch, 26 held dual Ethiopian-Israeli citizenship.

Among those listed in serious condition from the attack were Naftali Sheetrit, a U.S. citizen, and Nadav Eliahu Samuels, a Canadian citizen.

Eight students were killed in the attack on the yeshiva in Jerusalem’s western outskirts.

A gunman from Jebel Mukaber in eastern Jerusalem who reportedly had once worked as a driver for the yeshiva entered the cafeteria Thursday and opened fire before being gunned down in retaliatory fire.
