American wounded in Jerusalem terror shooting recounts: ‘Everyone was ducking and screaming’

Speaking to reporters at the Shaare Zedek hospital in Jerusalem, Menachem Pallas, a visiting American , describes the terror shooting he and six others were wounded in near the Western Wall.

“I sat right next to the window and heard a gunshot. I looked and saw the whole window was shattered,” Pallas says.

“So I quickly ducked, and I saw I had blood everywhere over here,” he says, pointing to his shoulder.

“Everyone was ducking and screaming ‘Shema Yisrael,’ it was a pretty scary sight,” he says.

“Because of all the adrenaline, I didn’t know I had a bullet inside me,” he adds.
