ISRAEL — (Scroll down for video) — Two people have been seriously injured in an attack at the Jerusalem gay pride parade.
The attacker stabbed 6 people who were taking part in the annual gay pride march in Jerusalem. The suspect was arrested at the scene and it’s believed that he is the same attacker who perpetrated a similar style attack on a gay pride march in 2005.
He was recently released from prison after having been convicted of stabbing three people during the parade ten years ago.
Thousands of people were taking part in the annual pride parade in the capital when the attack occurred.
“I saw an ultra-Orthodox youth stabbing everyone in his way,” said Shai Aviyor, a witness interviewed on Israel’s Channel 2 television.
