The Jerusalem Post reports: An Israeli woman was identified as one of those killed in Monday’s terrorist attack in Berlin. Dalia Elyakim, who was vacationing with her husband in the German capital, is believed to have been killed when a truck plowed into an evening crowd of Berlin Christmas shoppers.

Local police said that 12 people were killed in the ramming attack. The truck driver fled the scene and is the subject of a massive manhunt. Elyakim’s husband, Rami, was seriously wounded in the incident and remains hospitalized after recovering from surgery.

The Foreign Ministry issued a statement Thursday saying that during the night Dalia Elyakim was positively identified among those killed in the attack. The embassy was working with the family to bring her body back to Israel for burial on Friday.
