It is still not clear by Israeli Police if the stabbing of a Jewish man was an act of terrorism or part of a late night bar fight. I was actually close to the scene where the incident occurred and was able to photograph the victum but was not aware at the time what had occurred. We watched as the man was carried out by two other Jewish men, his fate dragging the ground. At first it appeared he may have been passed-out from drinking, yet was after reading Israel National News and seeing the blood on his feet in our photographs that we put the two together. We are not yet certain which of the two young men was the one we photographed. Our deepest sympathies to the families.
25 year-old Yaakov Brami has been named as the man stabbed outside a Jerusalem club overnight Thursday.
Another young man was injured in the brawl, which erupted outside King George Street; he has not yet been identified.
Police have been searching for the perpetrator for most of Friday.
It remains unclear whether the stabbing was criminal – i.e., a pub brawl that spun out of control – or a deliberate terror attack.
