19 April 2023, Israel: Iran recently reconciled with Saudi Arabia, and feels confident with its rising regional power base. Two religious Jewish men, age 48 and 50, were shot in their car in Jerusalem while returning home from morning prayers.
In a tweet, Israeli Opposition Leader, Yair Lapid wrote: “Two Jews were shot in Jerusalem on Holocaust Remembrance Day just because they were Jews. Security forces will get the shooter and bring him to justice. This is the reason we have a state, we have the IDF and the Jews have the ability and power to protect themselves. I wish a speedy recovery to those wounded.”
