The Israel Police says in a tweet it “bows its head in remembrance of Zidan Saif, 30, who risked his life to save lives and was killed in the terror attack in Jerusalem this (Tuesday) morning. May his memory be blessed.”
Saif was reported to have been the first policeman to reach the scene of Tuesday’s Har Nof attack, and was shot in the head by one of the terrorists.
His parents and wife were at his bedside at Hadassah’s Ein Kerem Hospital as doctors fought to save his life throughout Tuesday, praying for his recovery. He leaves behind a 7-month-old daughter as well.
