Death – Obituary – Accident and Crime News : Israeli Soldier Mistakenly Shoots and Kills Civilian in Jerusalem Attack

In a tragic turn of events, an Israeli soldier mistakenly shot and killed an Israeli civilian who was heroically trying to neutralize two Hamas gunmen at a bus stop in Jerusalem. The incident occurred during Thursday morning’s rush hour, leaving three innocent people dead before the attackers were shot dead by two off-duty soldiers and the brave civilian, Yuval Doron Castleman, who tragically passed away overnight.

According to Israeli police, the investigation thus far indicates that during the attack, one of the IDF soldiers mistakenly identified Castleman as a third assailant. Acting with bravery and courage, Castleman attempted to neutralize the terrorists, but he was tragically shot by the soldier, leading to his serious injury and subsequent death.

Security camera footage, obtained by Reuters, captures the chilling moments of the attack. A white car can be seen stopping beside the crowded bus stop, and two armed men swiftly exit the vehicle, charging at the unsuspecting crowd as panic ensues. Shortly thereafter, the Palestinian attackers themselves are shot and killed.

Heartbreaking video footage shared on social media depicts Castleman firing his weapon at one of the assailants before throwing away his gun. He then falls to his knees, raising his hands in the air, seemingly signaling that he is not a threat.

The Israeli police expressed their condolences to Castleman’s family, acknowledging his brave actions that saved lives. They also extended their sympathy to the other families who lost loved ones in the attack and wished a speedy recovery to the injured victims.

This tragic incident serves as a somber reminder of the tense atmosphere in Jerusalem and the constant threat of violence faced by its residents. As the investigation continues, authorities will work diligently to prevent such devastating mistakes from occurring in the future.
