Israeli 'seriously' injured in Berlin terror attack, and wife missing

Twelve people were killed on Monday evening when a truck ploughed into a Christmas market near the Kaiser Wilhelm Memorial Church. At least 48 people were seriously injured.

The injured Israeli tourist was in the market with his wife, who is still missing, Elio Adler, a family friend in Berlin, told JTA. The husband was located in a Berlin hospital, where he is currently undergoing emergency surgery. The wife has not yet been located.

A memorial service has been planned by Chabad in Berlin, for Wednesday evening. 

Dr. Moshe Kantor, President of the European Jewish Congress, said: “We are appalled at these senseless and despicable murders across Europe”.

“Our hearts are with the victims and their families, our deepest solidarity with the people and our strongest wishes for a full recovery to those injured in these barbaric attacks.”

“Once again we have seen the bloody face of Islamist terrorism in our capitals and in our streets. Let us not just hope that 2017 will be a better year, but let us join together to defeat this scourge and rid it from our societies.”
