A victim of this week’s terror bombing in Jerusalem has died as a result of injuries sustained in the attack, according to The Times of Israel.

Tadese Tashume Ben Ma’ada, 50, was critically injured in an explosion Wednesday morning at a bus stop at the main entrance to Jerusalem, one of two bombings that rattled the capital.

A statement from Shaare Zedek Medical Center in Jerusalem said they “fought for his life but unfortunately his injuries were too serious.”

Ben Ma’ada’s family said they were thankful for the support they’d received since the attack but asked the public and the media to respect their privacy.

Ben Ma’ada immigrated to Israel from Ethiopia 21 years ago. He leaves behind a wife and six children.

“Last week, I visited his dedicated family, who wrapped him with love, and the doctors who bravely fought for his life. I embrace the family at this difficult hour. May he rest in peace,” Netanyahu said on Twitter.

Outgoing prime minister Yair Lapid said he was “heartbroken” to hear of Ben Ma’ada’s death.
