(JNS.org) Yeshiva student Shalom Aharon Baadani, 17, died Friday of injuries he sustained in Wednesday’s vehicular terror attack in Jerusalem, becoming the second victim in the incident.

Baadani was riding his bicycle to the Western Wall when he was hit by a terrorist’s car near the Shimon Hatzadik light rail station. Israeli Border Police Superintendent Jadan Assad was also killed in the attack, which Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attributed to Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’s incitement against Israel.

“This attack was the direct result of the incitement of Abbas and his Hamas partners,” Netanyahu said. “This front of hate wants to run over all of us. Peace will come when Abbas stops calling Jews ‘defilers’ and he stops embracing murderers.”
