Irina Korolova, a Ukrainian national, is identified as the sixth victim of last night’s terror attack in Jerusalem’s Neve Ya’akov neighborhood.

According to Hebrew media reports, Korolova worked as a caretaker.

There were no immediate details regarding her funeral arrangements.

Earlier today, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky announced that one of the victims was a Ukrainian.

“We share [Israel’s] pain after the terrorist attacks in Jerusalem. Among the victims is a [Ukrainian] woman,” he says on Twitter.

“Sincere condolences to the victims’ families. The crimes were cynically committed on the [International] Holocaust Remembrance Day.”

“Terror must have no place in today’s world. Neither in [Israel] nor in [Ukraine],” he adds.

Seven people were killed in the shooting attack.

Earlier, the names of five 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, Asher Natan, 14, and Shaul Hai, 68.

One victim has not yet been publicly named.
