The Jerusalem Post have reported that six people have been attacked and stabbed in Israel at the annual Jerusalem Gay Pride Parade.

Yishai Schlissel, described by the Jerusalem Post as an ‘ultra-Orthodox man’, was released from prison just weeks ago after serving a 10 year sentence for wounding three people at a similar LGBT event in March of 2005.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has condemned the attacks as “a most serious incident” and that is contra to Israeli values.
