The fifth victim of the shooting attack last night in Jerusalem’s Neve Ya’akov neighborhood is named as 68-year-old Shaul Hai.

Hai was a gabbai (sexton) at a synagogue in the neighborhood, but not the one where the attack took place, according to the Kikar Shabbat news site.

The site says Hai was killed while heading to a Torah lesson at his synagogue.

Seven people were killed in the terror attack.

Earlier, the names of four of the victims were published. Eli, 48, and Natali Mizrahi, 45, a couple that had gone outside to try and help those who had been shot, Rafael Ben Eliyahu, 56, and Asher Natan, 14.

The other two victims have not yet been named. One is identified as a Ukrainian woman.
