Monday, February 14, 2022, 11:21 On Monday, February 14, the Jerusalem District Court ruled that the terrorist who stabbed Moria Cohen in the Shimon HaTzadik neighborhood would remain in remand until the end of proceedings. On her way to the hearing, the terrorist made the victory sign as her family encouraged her. Later, the family caused a disturbance in the corridors of the courthouse. Honenu Attorney Chayim Bleicher, who is representing Cohen, was present at the hearing.
The attack occurred as Cohen was walking with her five young children in the morning on December 8, 2021. The terrorist followed them, then pulled out a knife and stabbed Cohen in the back in an attempt to murder her. The terrorist had thrust the knife with such a great amount of force that it remained in Cohen's back. After Cohen shouted for help, the terrorist fled the scene. Cohen was rushed to the hospital with the knife still in her back. Several hours later, the terrorist was located at the school she attends.
Honenu Attorney Chayim Bleicher, who is representing Cohen: "We are dealing with terrorists, men and women, who are supported and encouraged by their surroundings to attack and murder Jews of all ages. The first step towards eradicating widespread and continuous terror is handing down maximum and stiff penalties, without leniencies for minors. We will demand the maximum penalty for the terrorist."
