Jerusalem - Meah Shearim Chasid Indentifed As Man Killed In Terror Attack
Jerusalem - Toldos Aaron chasidim in Jerusalem have been plunged into mourning the death of one of their own in today’s terror attack on Rechov Shmuel Hanavi.
Rabbi Avraham Walles has been identified as the man who was killed when a massive construction excavator rammed into an Israeli bus, overturning a Beitar Ilit bound bus onto the sidewalk, as previously reported on VIN News.
According to reports on Israeli site Kikar Hashabat, Rabbi Walles, a 29 year old father of five, who worked for the Organization “Asrah Kadisha” was headed to work at a nearby construction site, was not scheduled to be in the area today.
“He did a favor for a friend and agreed to switch places with him and in the end he was killed at same construction site where he was going to work for the first time,” said one distraught friend.
The excavator had been taken from that same construction site, the nearby Olive Tree Hotel.
Walles described by his friends as someone who never harmed anyone.
A fund has already been established to raise money for Rabbi Walles’ wife and children.
