In the below video, an “ultra-Orthodox” man named Yishai Schlissel is arrested amid a panicked crowd after stabbing six people. Schlissel also attacked several revelers at the Jerusalem Gay Pride parade in 2005, and had only recently been released from jail for that crime.

According to The Guardian, today’s attack is the worst homophobic violence the city has experienced in ten years.
