The Times of Israel reported on the scene of the attack.
“A young woman, Hadar Buchris, was lying on the ground, her upper body and head were covered in blood. A few feet away, an Arab man was motionless on the ground, with a police officer standing over him — gun drawn and pointed directly at him.
“Literally seconds had passed since the attack, but the junction was already filled with army personnel, Magen David Adom medics and police officers. A crowd of civilians gathered — workers from the area, people who had been waiting at nearby bus stops, drivers who had been passing by — ignoring police officers’ calls to keep away from the scene.
“The medics made quick work loading the 21-year-old Hadar Buchris onto a yellow intensive care ambulance. She was still conscious as they placed her on the stretcher, her eyes scanning the scene. She died of her wounds a few hours later in the hospital.
“Army medics, meanwhile, began checking the terrorist who had attacked her for signs of life. They began treatment, but after a few minutes pronounced the assailant, Wissam Tawabte, dead on the scene and covered him with a silver Mylar blanket.”
“On the sidewalk close to the bus stop there was a young woman aged about 20 years (lying) unconscious with stab wounds to her upper body.
“”Citizens who were at the site tried to help her and stem the bleeding. We took her quickly for intensive care and performed emergency lifesaving treatment on the way to the hospital, (while she was) sedated and on a ventilator.””
…”Dr. Ofer Merin, Head of the Trauma Unit at Shaare Tzedek Hospital in Jerusalem, said that Hadar had been stabbed multiple times in the head, and the area of the heart and chest. The young woman arrived with no life in her, in critical condition, with no blood pressure and not breathing. We attempted resuscitation several times but in the end we had to determine her death.””

The Times of Israel reported Buchris’ killer was shot dead at the scene by Israeli security forces.
“The terrorist was shot and killed by security forces at the scene. The Shin Bet security service later named him as Wissam Tawabte, 34, from Beit Fajjar, a nearby Palestinian village. He did not have previous links to terror activity, the Shin Bet said.”
This was one of three attempted Palestinian knife attacks on Israelis on Sunday. Only the attack on Buchris was successful. One, by a teenage Palestinian girl, was thwarted by a civilian who ran her over with his car. The girls was then shot by a civilian and security forces. The third attacker was a Palestinian cab driver identified as Shadi Khaseb who rammed an Israeli vehicle then got out of his cab and charged the car wielding a knife. He was shot by a passenger in the car before he could attack. All three attackers were killed.
