The Jerusalem municipality is planning to fire the wife of the terrorist who carried out Friday’s ramming attack in the city that killed three people, Channel 12 reports.

Hussein Qaraqa’s wife works for the municipality as a pedagogic assistant in special education. She is currently on maternity leave.

There is no current proof that Qaraqa knew of her husband’s plans in any way. But the municipality believes keeping her on would harm public trust following the deadly attack, the report says.
