The terrorist who murdered a British student in Jerusalem Friday was “not the first” to resort to terror “in order to escape his problems.”

The terrorist who perpetrated Friday’s attack in Jerusalem, stabbing and murdering a young British woman on a light rail train, was identified as Jamil Tamimi, 57, a resident of Ras al-Amud, the Shin Bet, Israel’s Security Agency, said in a statement.

Tamimi “recently tried to commit suicide – in a hospital in northern Israel – by swallowing a razor blade. In 2011 he was convicted of sexually abusing his daughter,” the statement read.

“This is not the first time that a Palestinian suffering from personal, mental or moral distress has chosen to commit a terrorist attack in order to escape his problems,” the statement concluded.

Two other victims were wounded and several people suffering shock and trauma were taken to a Jerusalem hospital for treatment.
