An Israeli man died on Saturday from wounds sustained on Thursday, when a bomb exploded near a Jerusalem bus station.

Tadasa Tashume Ben Ma’ada, a man in his fifties who immigrated to Israel from Ethiopia 21 years ago, died of his wounds on Saturday. He is the second person killed in the bombing – a fifteen year old boy was declared dead at the scene. Eighteen people were wounded.

Prime Minister-elect Binyamin Netanyahu issued a statement, “In the name of all of Israel’s citizens, I send my deepest condolences to the family of Tadasa, Tashume Ben Ma’ada who was critically injured in the terror attack at the entrance to Jerusalem and died of his injuries over the weekend. Last week, I visited his dedicated family who wrapped him in warmth and love and the doctors who fought valiantly to save his life against all odds. I embrace the family at this difficult time.”

Ben Ma’ada leaves behind a wife and six children.

Yair Lapid, the current Israeli Prime Minister, also offered his condolences, and Israeli President Isaac Herzog stated, “A few months ago, Michal met Tadasa Tashume where he worked as a senior jeweler in the wonderful project for olim from Ethiopia known as Megemeria. In the last week, we prayed for a miracle after he was critically injured in a terror attack in Jerusalem. We were very sad when we saw his framed photo this evening and the difficult message of his death. Our condolences to his dear family and loved ones.”

Megemeria is a jewelry-making school that trains Ethiopian immigrants to Israel in jewelry-making. It is run by the Yvel jewelry company – Megemeria means ‘New Beginning’ in Amharic, the main language spoken in Ethiopia.

Ben Madeh was taken to Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem. He was treated by the trauma and intensive care teams, but his injuries were critical and he died of his wounds on Saturday.

The explosion that killed him was one of two bombs placed by unknown assailants – one was placed in a bush by a crowded bus stop, and the second in Ramot, which is a settlement near the northern part of the city.

The other person killed was Aryeh Schupak, 15, a dual Israeli-Canadian citizen who was on his way to a Jewish seminary when he was killed.national who was heading to a Jewish seminary when the blast went off.
