Gay Pride Attack / Jerusalem

July 30, 2015

On 30 July 2015, only three weeks after being released, Ultra Orthodox Yishai Schlissel stabbed six marchers during the Jerusalem gay pride parade. One of the victims, 16-year-old Shira Banki, died of her wounds three days later. Posters praising the deadly attack appeared in the city’s ultra-Orthodox neighborhoods describing the stabbing as an act of holy ‘self sacrifice’.
