At least seven students were killed and six others were wounded Thursday evening when terrorists infiltrated the Merkaz Harav yeshiva in the Kiryat Moshe neighborhood in Jerusalem, police said.
Three of the injured were listed as being in very serious condition and taken to Hadassah Medical Center in Ein Karem, while the other four were taken to Sha’arei Tzedek Medical Center in the capital. MDA declared the incident a “multiple casualty event.”
Jewish Telegraphic Agency reported that 7 are now confirmed dead in the attacks.

YNET reported that the terrorists opened fire in a packed dining hall:
Two terrorists infiltrated a rabbinical seminary at the entrance of Jerusalem and opened fire after nightfall Thursday, police said. The ZAKA emergency response service has confirmed at least eight people have been killed in addition to one of the terrorists.
Ambulances raced to the scene from around the city and paramedics confirmed numerous additional casualties. The gunmen entered a dining hall where about 80 people were gathered, witnesses said, and opened fire.
Paramedics said they treated six additional people for injuries – among them four in serious-to-critical condition.
Yitzhak Dadon, a student, said he was armed with a rifle and waited on the roof of a nearby building. ”He came out of the library spraying automatic fire … the terrorist came to the entrance and I shot him twice in the head,” he said.
