An ultra-Orthodox extremist named Yishai Shlissel who was recently released from prison after stabbing three people at Jerusalem’s 2005 LGBT pride parade apparently stabbed six people at the same parade on Thursday, reports say.

From the Jerusalem Post:

Paramedics were treating two people in serious condition, one in moderate condition and three people who were lightly injured. All of the victims were in their thirties.

After Shlissel was subdued and emergency responders arrived to treat the victims, the march continued.
