An Israeli man died Saturday from wounds he sustained in two blasts that hit Jerusalem earlier this week, bringing to two the number of dead in the blasts that Israeli police blamed on Palestinians.
The medical center in Jerusalem said Tadesse Teshome Ben Madeh had died. The trauma and intensive care teams of Shaare Zedek tried to save his life, but his injury was fatal.
There was an explosion near the bus stop on the edge of the city. Ramot, a settlement in the city’s north, was the site of the second detonation.
One of the blasts killed Aryeh Schupak, a dual Israeli-Canadian national, who was heading to a Jewish seminary.
Three Israelis were seriously injured in the blasts. Since the end of the Palestinian uprising almost two decades ago, bombing attacks have been very rare.
There was no Palestinian claim of responsibility for the Jerusalem explosions. Tensions between Israelis and Palestinians have been on the rise since a series of attacks against Israelis in the West Bank killed 19 people in the spring.
More than 120 Palestinians have been killed in Israeli-Palestinian fighting in the West Bank and east Jerusalem this year, making it the deadliest year since 2006.
Most of the Palestinians killed by the Israelis have been militant. Stone-throwing youths who were not involved in confrontations have died.
