A Border Police officer who was critically wounded in a stabbing attack near Jerusalem’s Old City this morning has died.

She is named as Sgt. Rose Elisheva Lubin, 20, from Kibbutz Sa’ad in southern Israel.

Police say Lubin had moved to Israel from the United States in August 2021, and drafted into the police force as a so-called “lone soldier” in March 2022.

Her death brings the toll of police officers killed since October 7 to 59.
